Pcmcia slot seems to not work

I just added a Huawei EC360 wireless modem from Alltel to my E1505. Windows XP Home does not auto-detect the modem when inserted. Sys Info show the pcmcia bridge to be off. How do I turn it back on.

Right click on My Computer (it's on the Start Menu), and select "Properties". Click on the "Hardware" tab, and then the "Device Manager" button. The PCMCIA bridge should be listed, with a circle with slash through it, just right click on it, and select "Enable".

No Wireless signal on Presario 2170US Model #DK587AOptions I added a wireless card to my Presario. However when checking the service manual it states "CAUTION: Be careful when connecting and disconnecting...


My 2170US does not have built in wireless like some of the other HP or Compaq models of the same vintage. Buying a mini pci wireless card wont make the wireless work. You will need a wireless card for the pcmcia slot on the left side of the laptop then your wireless will work. If there is an issue with the pcmcia slot a cheap work around is to buy a usb. based wireless card and use one of the two usb.slots in the back. It's not high speed usb.2.0 so it may run a little slower. As long as your pcmcia slot works just install the the card that you can buy even at walmart install the software and your wireless should be up and running. Its an old laptop and not worth spending a bunch of money on when new or used much better machines are out there.

What wifi card for 12xl500 (compaq)?


It depends.

If your computer runs Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7, every known brand-new wireless adapter will work.

If your computer has a PCMCIA slot (about the size/thickness of a credit-card), then you can buy a "PCMCIA wireless adapter".

If your computer has a USB slot (most do!) then you can buy a "USB wireless adapter".

There are three different data-transfer speeds for wireless communications:
* wireless B -- up to 11 megabits/second
* wireless G -- up to 54 megabits/second
* wireless N -- much faster.

Note that "high-speed" service from your local cable-modem ISP can receive at up to 10.0 megabits (or even faster) per second, while "lite-speed" service receives data at around 1.0 megabits per second.

So, when downloading, it's your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) that will be the "bottle-neck", not the "B" or "G" or "N" capability of your wireless adapter.

You probably can find "used" wireless-B or wireless-G adapters, in your local area:
* online, via 'www.usedEverwhere.com'
* local computer-stores
* online via eBay

for $10 to $20 dollars.

Pick a "brand-name", and you can download the device-drivers for it from the manufacturer's web-site ('www.linksys.com', 'www.dlink.com')
if Windows does not automatically recognize it.

Pcmcia wireless network card. What can I use?


Most laptops have Type II PCMCIA slots. Some laptops have one slot, others have two slots. Your C600 should be OK.
For details read the following :-
  • Type I cards can be up to 3.3 mm thick, and are used primarily for adding additional ROM or RAM to a computer.
    • Type II cards can be up to 5.5 mm thick. These cards are often used for modem and fax modem cards.
  • Type III cards can be up to 10.5 mm thick, which is sufficiently large for portable disk drives.
  • As with the cards, PCMCIA slots also come in three sizes:
  • A Type I slot can hold one Type I card
    • A Type II slot can hold one Type II card or one Type I card
  • A Type III slot can hold one Type III card or any combination of two Type I or II cards.

    Wireless MODEM for Internet connection compatibility with Laptop


    Compaq/HP laptops that have a builtin wireless adapter have a wireless transmitter symbol near the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
    If you don't have a wireless adapter you need either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter. My choice would be a PCMCIA type because it frees up a USB port for other devices.
