Question about Computers & Internet
The quickest way to determine if the laptop has a wireless card is to use the Device Manager. To do that, right click on My Computer, either on the desktop on in the programs list, and then left click on Manage on the menu that will show to the right. When that opens, left click on Device Manager in the left column. When that opens in the right side, look under Network Adapters. There will be an entry for each adapter in the laptop. If there is only one, you do not have a wireless card. You will need to check the description of each card to see if there is a wireless one. If you can not tell, try doing a Google search for each card. That should tell you.
If you need to buy a card, most laptops have a PCMCIA card slot or USB ports. I would suggest buy a 'g' or 'n' type card. They are faster and will normally give you a better connection. I haven't priced them lately, but I would guess $40 on up, depending on the card and mfg.
let me know if you need more assistance with this issue.
Good luck and please let me know how it works out.
