You can order pretty much any PCMCIA Wireless network adapter. If the machine is older, you may want to try the "802.11g" or "802.11n" wireless notebook network card.
Try Belkin F5D7010, it uses the "g" signal band.
Hello, If IDE drives are hooked to the same controller one must be configured in BIOS as Master, and the second as slave. If there is only one drive, it should be set as master: Two drives on two different controller must be both defined as master.
The olny way to clear a password is to take out the CMOS battery and rejump some jumper settings on the motherboard. In a laptop, this can be very tedious and difficult. I would suggest unless you have extensive knowledge in taking these apart, take it in to a repair shop and have them do it. I don't know where you live at, but around this area I charge aobut 25-40 bucks for a laptop to reset, depending on the model. Older models are a little cheaper because they are easier to get at. You could attempt it yourself, but please do not try this unless you are very comfortable with what you are doing as you could render the laptop into a giant paperweight.
This is going to be with the machine, yes, too old. These machines take a 16 bit wireless card which is almost impossible to find since they stopped making them 6 or 7 years ago, and 16 bit cards were never produced by cellular providers, so a cellular card is completely out of the equation. The cards on the market today are a 32 bit card. I know you're trying to go wireless, but if you want to connect to high speed, you can use a bus port ethernet card that will allow you to plug an ethernet cable into the machine.
