Re: wireless

The Dell laptops have a service Tag number on the underside. Its normally 5 digits or so.. Go to and enter the tag number in there. Once it identifies your machine, there is a list which details the original system configuration. That will list a wireless card. (Truemobile) You may also be able to see whats in the CMOS by pressing the F2 key shortly after power-up.. Cheers. Pete

Can you please tell me where the wifi card would be on a compaq nx9005 laptop please

I don't know the location of the wireless card in your model laptop.
I have serviced quite a few laptops and have found the wireless card is either located on the bottom of the laptop behind a small panel or under the keyboard.
Try the bottom of the laptop first. Most wireless card have two wires attached to the card (aerials) and the card is held in place with two screws.

Where do you find a wireless card for this laptop?

It should have built-in wireless. Is there a wireless on/off switch on the right front of the case? Is there a wireless light indicator?
If your wireless switch is off, you won't be able to connect.
You can go to the device manager and look at the network devices to see if a wireless device is installed. If so, you'll just need to turn it on.
If you don't have one, you'll need to install a wireless card.

How do I tell if a HP NC8000 business laptop has a wireless card installed?

Go to Device Manager (for example via Control Panel - System - Hardware) and look under Network Cards. If your computer has a wireless on/off switch (on the side of the laptop or above the keyboard), make sure it's in ON position.

But yeah, there is always a WIRELESS LAN card in each laptop so that you can get connected to any Wireless Access Point like Routers,Bridges or Switches.

Your OS wizard will help you to configure all wireless settings.

Fujitsu P1510 wireless card replacement

Some laptops have a modem or wireless card that clip onto the motherboard like how the RAM is fitted to the motherboard. This card is larger than the RAM and may have one or two wires connected to this card. If so you will be able to replace this card.

If the wireless is a chip and is mounted on the motherboard then it would be impossible to replace.
Your only solution to this problem is to buy a PCMCIA wireless card and insert into the laptop's PCMCIA slot or use a USB wireless device. You may have to go into the BIOS and disable the internal wireless device.

WLAN switch button does not work

Locate your wireless card compartment on your computer. It is probably on the back of it. Your computer manual should tell you where it is. Open the compartment and locate your wlan card. Remove it from your laptop for about 30 seconds, and then reinsert it and make sure that the proper connections to it are firm and secure. Close up the compartment. Turn on your laptop. Your laptop should search and recognize it. If it doesn't, then your wireless card probably quit working on you. If your computer is still under warranty, and if it doesn't recognize it after you have tried this, then you can contact your computer manufacturer and explain to them what happened. They should replace your wireless card at no charge. If you bought the wireless card from some other store, then take it to them and explain to them, and ask for a replacement wireless card.
