Re: Where is the wireless switch

There isnt a switch for a PCMCIA wireless card. Most likely the driver did not install correctly.

make sure the card is plugged in. then right click "my computer1.gif" and click properties then click hardware1.gif then device manager. I bet there is a device called "network controller" with a yellow "!" through it. Next make sure the linksys install CD is in the drive, and doubleclick "netowrk controller" then click reinstall driver and let it "automatically find the driver". it should reload the correct one from the CD.

let us know if this helps.

Have a MPC x 1000 transport are there a way to add wireless to this notebook?

Sure is if you have a USB Port or a PCMCIA Slot.

The usb port is the best option because it is the latest technology. But if you don't have a usb port then go with the pcmcia slot.

Just click the link below and in the white search box at the top of the web page type: usb wireless adapter or pcmcia wireless adapter then press GO.

Cant find where to install a wireless card internally to my dell inspiron 2600

You can't install any cards internally as there isn't any room inside. If you want to add wireless capability you'll need a USB wireless adapter which you just plug in to one of the USB ports. This computer also has PCMCIA (card-bus) slots, but that's older technology. USB adapters are much easier to find.

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager

If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.

USB 1.1 and Wireless stick is 2.0

There are PCMCIA adapters that are made to handle USB 2.0. Of course why go to that expense. Just buy a PCMCIA network adapter.

I have an older HP laptop with no wireless capability. We have DSL with the wireless router connected to our desktop. The only way I can access the internet is by putting in the AT&T air card. I don't want...

You can connect to the Internet using your DSL wireless router by several methods.
1. If your HP has a LAN port the you can connect to your wireless router with a LAN cable (provided you have a spare LAN port on the router.
2. You can use a USB wireless adapter to connect to the wireless router.
3. You can use a PCMCIA wireless card to connect to the wireless router.
Both the wireless USB and PCMCIA wireless adapter are approx. $50, my preference is to use a PCMCIA adapter, it leaves the USB port free for other devices,such as USB memory sticks, especially if the laptop has only one USB port.

Wireless Card will not fit in slot

First, make sure that the type of card that you bought is compatible with the slot. Your presario can use Type I or II standard PC or PCMCIA cards. If the linksys adapter that you bought is not a PC/PCMCIA card, rather an ExpressCard, it really won't fit.
