What do I need to get for mobilepro 900 to get on internet
I purchased the 900 a couple of months ago. It was just the machine with no PC cards or anything else. While I have MSN on my laptop, I don't know how to get to the internet via my 900. I don't want to link to my company's laptop.
My laptop will go away in 4 months, and the 900 seems perfect for me, but I'm pretty computer challanged. Do I need PC cards, and which ones?
