On the inside of the case on the motherboard, there are white slots called PCI expansion slots. Covering the hole is a metal or plastic plate, that is usually held in place by a screw or a clamp. Remove the plate and keep the screw to fasten the card in place. Once the plate is removed, slip the card in place and make sure the card is seated the whole way down into the slot and that the card seats in the open slot where an antennae will attach.

How do I install a wireless card


Open panel , usually side slides off after removing screws.
Look for an open bay to plug the card into, pins must match in number and location. There are notches so it will only fit one way. Back of case should have a metal strip that can be removed for each bay. Remove strip on back of case, install card, reassemble case.

Fujitsu Lifebook S6120 for Siemens. Is there a way to upgrade to wireless N foregoing USB? Is there a wireless card that can be easily swapped out via a bay?


There is not a wireless card you can install via a bay. You would have to buy a motherboard with the wireless adapter integrated, or if the motherboard has interchangable parts, you can purchase the adapter and install it.

How do i set up wireless internet on my hp pavillion a330n desktop? Do i need a wireless card or is it built in? and where do i put the wireless card if i need one?


Hello,

Yes you need a wireless adapter.

Solution one : Get PCI wireless adapter which you will insert in an empty PCI slot inside your computer.

Solution 2. Buy a USB wireless adapter, which you plug in a USB port.
However, if my memory serves me right, that particular HP pavillion is 5 or 6 years old, and it does support USB 2.0, just USB 1.1

My advice to you is to buy a USB 2.0 PCI card to be installed in an empty PCI slot )or in the one occupied by the firewire )if not needed). This card will provide 4 or 5 USB 2.0 adapters. Then buy a USB wireless adapter, which you will be able to use with other computers.

Hope It helps.
Rate this solution if it helps you.

Toshiba satellite 2805-S301 laptop wireless card


Not wireless ready - as none of the 2805's were ever pre-wired with wireless card antennas. You can install a PCMCIA wireless card, or use a USB wireless adapter. Either one will work - the PCMCIA cards will be faster.

Installing internal board dell d600 nic hardaware


The wireless card bay is located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. It will have two leads (wires) the plug onto it. There will be only one place that the card fits and you will know it when you see the two wires. After installing the card, then you will need the drivers in order for it to work properly, you can find the drivers at driverguide.com using the make and model of the card. Also, the two leads will only work properly if connected correctly. The card will work if connected wrong but the reception will be lousy. If you find that you're not getting a good signal after everything is installed and working, try switching the wires.

Instaling a wireless pci card


First, as this is a type 3 mini pci slot that has your modem installed need to know if under or near the pci modem there are 2 wires with micro mini attach points. these would be the wires to attach the antenna to the wireless card. If there are no wires, then you will have to purchase the antennas as well. Normally these wires run up under the back side of the LCD Bezel.

Sounding complicated yet? Have you considered a USB wireless adapter from Newegg.com, tigerdirect.com,geeks.com,zipzoomfly.com,or e-bay, not to mention local stores.

Wireless connection


Hi, what you will need is a PCMCIA wireless card or usb wireless stick, these can purchased pretty cheaply these days from the likes of ebay or your local computer shop should be able to sort you out. PCMCIA would be the one I would choose as these just slot into an empty bay and once installed, can be left there. Hope this helps, if not give me a shout and I'll see what else I can do. Si :)
