My dad gave my son an elderly (2001) HP Pavilion xf145 notebook with windows xp. We can't figure out if we need to add a wifi card of some sort, if it can even connect to our wifi or what. It seems to...

You can use either external wifi modem and connect it to the notebook by ethernet cable or (better) use PCMCIA wifi card (second-hand e.g. from eBay?) or wifi usb modem connected direct to usb port. Just check if choosen wifi modem supports your OS WIN XP (and service pack - e.g. WIN XP SP3). In the Reference guide of the notebook is not specified USB version - it seems to be v. 1.0, so it is necessary to get an USB wifi modem compatible with USB 1.0 standard.

I have toshiba Tecra 9000 laptop, its USB ports and Keyboard EXTERNAL port is not working. please help me

It's a common problem with the Tecra 9000's - either one or both USB ports and sometimes the external KB port along with it. The 2 USB's and external KB port (and the TV out port next to it) are all located on the same daughterboard that plugs into the motherboard, and in your case, more than likely the connector on the motherboard is bad (gotten loose). There's no easy fix for this unless you've got an ultra-fine soldering tip, good soldering skills....

How about a workaround? A PC card (PCMCIA card) that gives you 2 or 4 high speed USB 2.0 ports - it'll stick out a little on the right hand side, but in return you'll have fast USB ports, and you can use a USB keyboard with the thing.

I purchased a wifi card for my N610c but don't see where it's installed


You don't say which operating system you are using.

You don't say which brand, type, format and model of Wifi Card you bought.

If it is an internal card, this cannot be installed without total disassembly of the notebook and, even then, might not fit because the motherboard might not support it or even have a slot for it. This card also requires internal aerial wires. Such a device also needs channels and LCD Panel sockets for the card's aerial wires.

What you should do is go back to where you bought the card from and exchange it for either a PCMCIA or USB Wireles LAN card, which fit simply into the notebook via its PCMCIA or USB ports. After you install the software and restart the PC, your notebook will be able to connect to your wireless router.

Trying to get a wifi for an old HP Pavilion lap top and they ask for the conplete model name. Where do I find it.

Bellow laptop there's a sticker with this data, but the easiest way to add WiFi connection is buying an USB WiFi adapter, but before check if you have USB ports, it doesn't, it should have a PCMCIA (also called PC Card) slot, then you could get a WiFi PCMCIA adapter compatible with you operating system.

I have just bought a second hand compaq nc 4010 i have read that i can make it wireless using a pcmcia wifi card how do i install it as i have no disc drive on the nc4010?thank you

pcmcia is a card slightly smaller than the antique floppy disc that usually fits in a slot on the side of your laptop your model does have this slot, but personally I would go for a usb hsdpa modem as this provides faster broadband internet.
good luck

I am looking to fit a mini pci wireless card in to my toshiba p10-382 but cannot seem to find an aerial inside the compartment, is there one fitted to the unit or do i need to obtain one, thanks.

Mini PCI wireless cards are usually equipped with internal antennas, so you don't need to worry about it unless you have an external plug in the card itself where you can attach an external antenna.

How can the usb port 1.1 be upgraded to 2.0?


There might be man options :-

1. if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot you can buy a USB 2.0 PCMCIA adaptor.

2. You can purchase one USB 2.0 PC card ( from sites like ebay etc) with four ports. This lets you swap it around from laptop to laptop, depending upon which one might happen to need it at any given time (for backups to external HD, camera downloads, etc.). For most other purposes, like moving stuff to and from flash drives, it's really ok with the old 1.1 port. The only disadvantage of this solution is that the card is so large that it doesn't allow simultaneous use of a wifi card. The solution to this problem was to buy a USB-WiFi card. This was a bit steep, but we only needed one of them -- just for whichever PC happened to be using the USB 2 adapter.
