    I have a wireless router at home through my ISP and use WiFi with my other devices. I bought this PC used and found that it does not have WiFi, it has Bluetooth. I wanted to know what card to I need to install and where for WiFi. I'm not great with laptop hardware, however can follow directions very well. Thanks for your help.

    What are you intending to do with the WiFi?

    Are you trying to connect to the Internet with a wireless router and if so have you got an Internet service Provider?

You have two choices for a wireless connection, a PCMCIA card or a USB device.
My choice would be a PCMCIA card, because it frees up a USB port.
There are quite a few PCMCIA card to choose from, I favour Netgear and D-Link.
Their instructions make them easy to install and setup.
Let me know if you have problems.

You could buy a USB wireless network adapter and plug it into a USB port and get wireless internet that way. Wouldn't matter which USB network adapter that you would buy.
