Is my internal wifi card an antique?

I am having problems connecting to the internet remotely. Could my internal wifi card be too old to be able to receive the signal? I have a Belkin router if that makes a difference.

    Your internal card could be the wireless type- 802.11b, while your Belkin router may only work with wireless type- 802.11g or better. How old is your wireless card and laptop? Also, is your Belkin router new?

It is also possible that you have set a security connection on your computer and the new router is not set to the same security settings. If they don't match, you will not connect...nor will anyone trying to 'steal' your signal.

I cannot connect my Dell XPS M140 laptop to WiFi since we got a new router.


Fn/F2 probably turns the wifi on/off but your problem is you need to connect to the new device, and enter the new password. In the tray (notification) area, click the Network or wifi icon, find the new device (You may have to click Connect first.), connect to it and enter the password when prompted.

Internet connection problem My older Compaq evo tower suddenly stopped connecting to the internet tried an other wire still nothing an even older computer connects fine what could be my problem


redux 1.facts emerge.
Ethernet port dead, router ok other PC work there.
unknown card stated, of the 4 .
mint version v18. Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon
be important and even kernal version. 4.4.0-17?
HP EVO D510. year made 2002, even sold with
windows 2000, so old . 16 years old today,
(no spring chicken, and most new OS fail on all 16year old PCs, for good reasons, no new drivers)

it came new with these.
which one do you have.? PCI card.

Integrated Intel PRO/100 VM network connection
3COM 3C905C-TX network connection
Intel PRO/100 S management adapter
Broadcom NetXtreme based 10/100/1000 management Gb adapter

at the Linux command prompt
type
lspci -nn -v (enter) the 2 spaces are mandatory.

see this. in the stream of acts see ethernet pop.
(we can do this this in windows and linux now)

http://www.pcdied.com/example-nn-v.JPG

what is in that slot is anyone's guess, 100's of card there possible.
what I do is open the case side and look
read the card words there, stamped on it,
3com cards are JUNK, HP does not support it now.
(they own it and killed it, wiki HP buys 3COM 2010)
i think linux avoids it for the same reasons.
(reason HP does not make drivers for this card now nor host the old, dead as door nail it is)


what mint? V18 ,ok.
what card is there.

I'd run Ubuntu v16, with a NIC card they like.
Intel card
broadcom
Realtek
tops my list.

the Linux kernal is complied with some NIC cards.
only ,each version is different and very hard to pry this info from them.
sadly,

i see mint fails even on a new ASUS board
with Realtek RTL8111F
a vary common chip
the helper says kernal 4.5 might work.
but that is for newer chips never the old

https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comments/4f09o5/no_ethernet_with_linux_mint_173_cinnamon/


let me tell you how Kernels are built.
they delete old chips is the rule!
the newer kernals delete the chips used 10 years ago or older,
why
so the kernal is not full of 1000s of useless chip drivers,, making it huge.
reason #2, how can a new Kernal be tested on 100s more dead CHIPs, (dead means not sold, not found now) Impossible, endless task that would be and is not done, same rules MS PNP use.same reasons.


now that you know that
the learn what card you have,
you then ask the mint guys, what kernal
worked on that old card.
(if lucky some poor sod can remember that long ago and answer.

why not buy $20 PC used at GOODwill and is 2007 or newer, be really wise choice.
that is my full and long answer.
if you had told the nic card there, answers go faster.

so brave up see that CAT5 cable on rear of PC
where does it go?
inside,
if a card , what card?, only what card matters.
or buy new one that is supported, for say $10

My TracFone want let me on internet say I have no net work I reset it a few weeks ago ant worked after


Are you in a "remote area"? You should be able to verify the signal from the tower to ensure you still have a good connection with Tracfone. Do you also connect via WiFi at your location to the Internet? Maybe your device that enables you to receive a good WiFi signal is not working or working poorly.... One thing to do first is to power off your phone and restart it so that the phone can reinitialize with all the connections it needs to get a good Internet connection. If you live close to a public establishment where you know they have a good WiFi connection, go there to see if it works there. If it does, then you can isolate part of the problem. (your usual location)....where you can check for trouble... If the phone doesn't connect to a public WiFi connection, then the phone might have a problem connecting. Has it been dropped recently? Sometimes, dropping the phone will cause the internal system board to crack, causing damage to the phone. You should also call the Tracfone customer service number and see if the representative can go through some troubleshooting tips with you I hope the choices helped you to find an easy option.

Wifi wireless connection We just bought a new battery charger and new battery for compaq evo n400c but we can't get a wireless connection that worked before, but we have changed internet companies and...


N400C with XP?
compaq day,seems like only compaqs fail of the HP holdings..
1 more relic PC, from Compaq.
well gee can you connect a starbucks or any other public
wifi? surely you can do that.
if that works, gee the wifi is ok, no? all in few minutes work
or do so at a friends how, him telling you his secret password and all that.


that card is PCMCIA card, now called PCcard. for slang.
it is and ADDON card, and needs its own special drivers to work.

first off the Cat5/6 (RJ45) ETHERNET cable sold in all stores
plugs into that PC, and connects to the router and works with no magic. (assuming OS has not been corrupted ,unstated OS by you)
IS THIS a XP PC? the virus magnet from H3LL>?


that is a wired connection, and makes getting new drivers
1000x times more easy off the net. unless you want to use 2nd PC and play musical file swaps, all day.?
sure it worked before, all things by man dead, (well not Yugos or stuff from china)
My wild guess, (i cant see your device manger page)
is that the drivers for the PCMCIA WIFI (unnamed) works.
and the dimbulb , ISP guy didt set up wifi and give you a paper
telling you the 3 facts to make it works.
1: the SSID (name)
2: the encryption (wep, wpa, wpa2) or add hoc, wide open dangerous.
3: and your very own, pass word.

lacking that its hard to connect, or use the hot button n the
what router, ? name and number.
we can go to it and login and see what is there.

there is also WPA, wireless protected setup , if turned ON in the router, I keep mine Off.
you press that magic button on router and then try to connect using windows wifi connect icon. or app
Add Wireless Station , is the name.
may old wifi cards like yours do not allow WPA magic connections.

so if the wifi icon in the try
if yes and you click it , do you see your neighbors broadcast SSID names> good. if not WIFI is DEAD.
if dead, you need to get the drivers for it,
remove the PCMCIA card, the
read the name the the number
and then find a driver from the maker. matching XP if this is XP
you never once told OS./ so... we cant help much.

btw it can work with your new router
but the guy who put it in is a lazy dog.
he'd have told you the new connection rules. above
for sure.
or gave you the PASS word to your router.!
is it yours, his, my guess, HIS>


i have relic pc used only for running relic expensive software
and uses the same type card, I installed it.
a D-Link Dwa-652
and now I answer Q2, can i do this other ways, sure.
gotcha1: the card I have only runs in 1 of the 2 slots, yah tricky.

you can buy a USB WIFI dongle
but finding one for XP is hard now. XP is DEAD.

why not go to GOODWill and buy any LT there with W7 COA sticker on the bottom , for 100% better and longer support.
why own any LT this old?>????? why?
can buy one there for like $20
and has internal wifi that works far better. too.

You got problems with your dns settings, try to delete all the old connection profiles, or restore default settings, and see if it works.
