Any type 1 or type 2 PCMCIA or PCCARD (Not Express Card) should work fine. However, due to the age of your computer, I would buy the cheapest card that support WiFi G. Wifi G is not only faster, but has a stronger and more reliable signal over version B.

Please note that I just found this article on the Internet about Verizon Fios which you may wish to check out first. http://www22.verizon.com/residentialhelp/fiosinternet/networking/setup/wi-fi/124650.htm

Good Luck

Wireless switch on model solo 5300


Hi. Not enough information. Do you want a switch? Do you need to FIND a switch? Is it a Gateway notebook?
The specifications for the Gateway Solo 5300 do not indicate a wireless system as part of the original unit.
See:
http://support.gateway.com/s/manlib/Notebooks/Solo5300/8508144/8508144.htm

Most units with PC100 memory (like this one) did not come with wireless. You will likely need a wireless PCMCIA card.

This is an old model Gateway. The only way you can get a modem or network adapter is to use a PCMCIA LAN card or a combined LAN and model PCMCIA card. There are quite a few brands on the market.

I think there is no Wireless lan connection available with your machine. You will have to install the same. Now USB Wireless Lan Cards available. Buy a New Wireless lan adopter and install

Bent pins on Gateway Solo 1450 pcmcia slot.


It would be difficult to remove and replace the PCMCIA slot on any laptop. Buy her a USB wireless adapter from Linksys or DLink. It would be easier and less expensive for you.

the UM150 wireless card goes into the computer.

Hi, I can help you with this. Do you have a wireless router? Do you have DSL or cable modem? If you would like to chat online about it, I can walk you through a few things to try. There isn't enough information here in your problem description to solve it without talking to you in some way. I could also do a phone call if you don't have two machines at home. Let me know if you would like to do that. Thank you.

Verizon Wireless PC 5750 air car work in a HP Pavillion


No because the Aircard PC5750 is a PCMCIA slot card, and your laptop has a Next Gen Express Card/ 54 Slot. The Express card slot is smaller than the PCMCIA slot. That makes the PC5750 incompatible.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
