Can i install wireless card ddapter on dell inspiron b1300? Do I need drivers or softare?


From what I can see that laptop should already come with a dell 1470 A/B/G card internal. It is a mini-PCI card.
This card should work, but be aware it is not an "easy swap" where you would just slide one out and the broadcom in. On most laptops you would have to dissasemble a lot of the components in order to get into the area where the wifi card is held. I have done it on several laptops, but it is not at all an easy task for someone that is not used to building computers.
If it is of any help to you, I found this review that has a lot of info about the specs and such on your laptop.

My wireless internet shows connected, but it won't display a page


My Dell Inspiron Mini 10 would not connect to wireless Internet. Tried all the fixes but only restore to previous date worked. Last time I restored I got message: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe. Please re-install a copy of the above file." I could not find any way to fix this so I tried to restore to original factory. I followed directions, f12 boot from CD but when I get to "Agree to Licensing Agreement" none of the keys work except ESC. I was able to get on the Dell Tech Chat at http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/chat/hardware_chat?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs (you need your Service Tag) tried same steps I did but keys would not work so they sent me a new hard drive that I can install myself.
Evidently there is no way to fix this. Tech says wireless will work with new hard drive. I hope so.

Wireless card w 9242 - where is it in the 5100 Insperion???


On the Inspiron 5100, the wireless card can be accessed thru a door on the bottom of the laptop.
1) Remove AC power and Battery
2) Turn the computer over, loosen the captive screw (labeled "circle C") in the modem/Mini PCI card cover, and lift the cover away from the computer.
3) Disconnect the Wireless card from the attached cables. These are the Antenna wires.
4) Use your fingertips to carefully spread apart the securing taps on each side of the Wireless card until the card pops up.
5) Remove the Wireless card.
