Wireless internet card for DELL C600 - ?

Good morning! Recently I bought a used C600. It has no wireless internet capability. I want to buy a wireless card. But there are many on the market so I am confused as what is the best for C600. Some of them offered are DELLs, some - different brands. I assume that a DELL card will be ideal. But what card model number do I need? Thank you! Tania

    Very good advice thank you cordially! I did not know that pcmcia card must be of the same brand as router.

    But in my case I mostly want to use public WIFI joints and they may have different routers.
    Is there any card that is more universal than others with higher chances to communicate with different routers?
    And if I go with DELL card what is the correct model for my C600?

    If I use USB adaptor I won`t be able to use my USB headset for Skype I am afraid.

    Any further suggestions?

Personally i would go for a usb wireless adapter as many people have driver problems with the pcmcia slot and are unable to get it to recognise the card, whereas usb is much simpler to use. All the usb type adapters are much the same they dont have to be the same make as your router, but buy the same transfer speed type, for example if you have a 108MBPS router buy the compatible 108 MBPS adapter as a 54MBPS adapter will reduce the transfer speed capabilty, not to be confused with your connection speed.

    i assume there's only one usb port then, i didn't say the pcmcia cards have to be the same as the router though, i said the usb adapters DON'T have to be the same make, the same applies to pcmcia cards, any will do, just ensure the drivers are in your notebook for the pcmcia port otherwise it will cause problems, go for any pcmcia card you want.

I have a dell latitude cpx computer i m tryin to figure out how to hook my wireless internet to it it dont have a place for an ethernet to go


This laptop does not have ethernet or wireless capabilities. You can't connect this to a wireless network.
You would need to buy a PC extension card and use it from the extension connector slot.

I got a used dell latitude cp and i'm wondering if it has a wireless card, or how i can hook it up to my wireless internet


Not sure, you should see, amongst all the led's which show when the Power / DVD or HDD are running. A small led which either looks like an antenna or has one inscribed near it.

If no, there's probably no card.

However, to connect to your wireless internet you may be able to use a PCMCIA card or a USB dongle. Just ensure the one you get is capable of decrypting at the standard you require ie WEP or WPA.

Dell latitude cp laptop how do you make it wireless for the internet


All laptops have inbuilt wireless network cards. You would need to have a wireless access point which has internet connectivity at your home or office. If available, you need to search for the wireless network and get connected. Some networks are secured so you would have to contact the administrator for the key.

Can't get wireless to work on laptop


You may use the System restore utility on windows by going to all programs then Accessories... Open system Tools and then System Restore. You may resotre your system to an earlier time, time when you are still able to connect to your router wirelessly.

How do you set up a wifi connection on a dell c600/c500


Your Dell does not have built-in wireless capability. You will have to purchase a wireless PCMCIA card for this computer.
Once you get the card, you place it in the card slot on the side of the computer and install the software--actually, I believe you install the software first.
Anyway, once the card is installed, you will be able to access wireless networks. I usually recommend Linksys cards as I've had good experiences with them.

My fiance is the the military! I sent him my old Dell latitude CP ... I forgot that it doesn't have a phone plug to connect to the Dial up on base. Is there a way to connect to the internet I don't...


I bought my sister a Dell laptop that didn't have a dial up modem in it, never saw one that didn't have one.
Dell sells a dial up modem that goes into the usb port for about $35, which I sent to her and it works. Basically it is just an external dial up modem.
Give it a try, just call the dell help phone number.

Connecting a cpi to the internet ?


1) You can use a PCMCIA card (for example a Dell Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX by 3Com) with a 'dongle' to connect to the ethernet cable via an existing card slot on the left side.

2) You can get a docking station set-up (i.e. Latitude 'C/Dock') which comes with the ethernet cable connection. ...pretty affordable used on the 'net.

3) If you has a wireless router you could hook a wireless USB adapter tp connect wireless to yout router.
