    There are lots of spares on flea bay, The board is easy to replace. There are a couple of covers underside of your laptop. Removing one or more will reveal hard drive, ram and wifi board. Order a wifi board for your model laptop and when it arrives, fitting is straight forward. If you get lost, see utube for video information. Hope that helps.

You can use the cable and plug in to your router. It is normally a faster connection

SOURCE: compaq evo n610c wireless lan w200 - is network

The EVO 610 has a built-in modem and a network LAN but no wireless LAN.
If you wish to connect to the Internet at home and elsewhere you have a few options.
You can use a PCMCIA wireless network card or a USB wireless device. These devices will allow you to connect to WiFi places such as Internet cafes or free WiFi locations such as McDonalads, Starbucks and airports etc.
You can use an Internet Service Provider that provides country and or state wide roaming access, and they usually use wireless netword cards that integrate with the mobile (G3) network.

You need to check with various Internet Service Providers to see what they offer, the various plans, costs and also if they offer roaming access.
Be aware that connecting to public WiFi networks can have security issues if you are not protected.

My internal wireless does not work. Is there another way i can enable wireless? Ive heard about wireless network adapter cards but dont know much about them. please help :)

Other than repairing the internal wireless, obtaining a Wireless USB Adapter is one way to deal with this. (USB must be properly functioning on your notebook of course). These devices look very much like a USB memory stick.

I need a wireless pci cardslot for my toshiba satellite m35x s109

Don't waste any more of your time trying to find one. Even if you found one, you more than likely wouldn't be able to get it to work well with a modern wireless router. Get a wireless USB adapter instead. You can get them for less than $10 from just about anywhere and it will actually work without hassle with your wireless router.

Got a hp laptop with wireless on it the wireless has just stopet working i have to use a usb adapter so that i can go on the internet.can you tell me how to get my wirelss back.thank you.

does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?

if not is it enabled in the bios?

Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..

On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch

there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..

what model HP laptop do you have?

I have a acer travelmate 3000 laptop and cant get my wireless to work, if i plug in a new wirless usb stick it works fine but i wont the internal wireless to work, does this mean my internal wireless card...

Odds are pretty good the wireless is not enabled.

If you look at page three item three of the manual, it shows the button/indicator on the front of the system to enable wireless.
