Can I upgrade this model?

Is my 2005 LaVie upgradable to a 450 Mbps N wireless setup? I have a Pcmcia slot, but wonder if my system would accept a wireless card with 3 wires..

SOURCE: hi im using lavie ll900/c laptop from japan.

Have you installed the correct drivers? Do you know how to get to the device manager (control panel, system, device manager) Does this show any devices with question marks (?) or exclamation points (!).
If so, this is the reason why your devices are not working; usually this occurs when the incorrect drivers are installed, or if you've not installed any drivers for the devices.
If you have wired internet connection, you can allow windows to download the drivers automatically (this works about 1/2 the time thoguht it takes forever to run)
Simply highlight the devices with a question mark, and hit delete.
Turn off your computer and restart, windows will detect them the next time it starts up, and allow windows to connect to the internet and download them automatically. (this assumes you have internet connection)
Otherwise, you will have to try to find the correct drivers for your hardware and if you are unsure what ones you need this can be difficult, the best place to start to look for them is the support page of your laptop manufacturer, or you can google search for them, using terms such as your brand, model number and device type (wireless or card reader) with the words driver download.
Hope this helps!

Can I upgrade my b/c wifi card to an n wifi card


99% of laptops come with wireless card built in to motherboard so to do upgrade would be very useless and expensive. easier way to upgrade to N wifi would be to just get a PCMCIA wireless n card from any pc store and plug it in to a available pcmcia slot. first make sure it is available on your laptop. it is on ether left or right side of laptop.usually has a little button that can be pushed to eject ether the card that is in or the plastic piece that is put in there to close the hole.here is a link with how some of them look like. http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&q=pcmcia&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&biw=1024&bih=584. hope this helps.

Can I Upgrade from USB 1.0 to 2.0 on Dell C610


No. To do so would require changing the hardware, namely the motherboard. It is not a "software" upgrade.

Instead, buy a PCMCIA-to-USB2 adapter, and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop.

Where to put the card in desktop


This card will not work in your desktop PC. This model does not support PCMCIA. You will need to get a different card for your desktop. One that supports PCI as this is the only expansion slot that you will have. (Also 1 PCIe). My recommendation would be to get a wireless G USB adapter that could easly plug in to the desktop via usb port. This way you will not have to take the case apart.

Need to upgrade


Yes call Fries Electronics let them know what model laptop you have they can tell you the type of memory you need SoDimm more then likely, they will give you a price. It is better to remove the old memory and take it with you when you go to buy it has to match. Also you can ask what is the largest recommended hard drive they have for this model laptop, probably 60gb. The motherboard for that laptop does have limitations. That laptop probably does not have a built in wireless card so you can either use a hard wire RJ45 Data cable and plug the other end into your Internet Router, or you can purchase a PCMCIA Wireless Card to insert into the slot on the side of the laptop. This PCMCIA Card will allow you to access the internet wirelessly. You have now beefed up your CPx Latitude.
