Try downloading the drivers at the vendors website and save it on a flash drive or any storage device which your laptop can handle and can you specify your product specification?

How do I convert my laptop to wireless?


If your laptop is a fairly old one and does not have built in wireless you can integrate it.
If it has a mini pc slot you can buy a mini pci wifi card, 802.11n is designation for the most recent cards.
Alternatively you can always obtain a PCMCIA card that will do the same job.

Then you will have to install the driver for the new hardware. It is fairly straightforward

How to connect wifi in msi ms-145 notebook?


Based on the specs I looked up. The laptop does not come suppied with a wireless network interface.
These are the specs based on the limited part number given.
You will have to get and install the PCIe mini card / Wifi controller.
Wireless LAN Support a full-height PCIe mini card (MS-6894 and MS-6890 applied here)

You can also find many good USB WIFI adapters that will also work.

There is a slot for inserting SIM card under the battery on my inspiron 15r n5010. I want to know how to set up drivers/firmware and software to set up internet access via 3G network using a sim inserted...


The SIM card holder is there to support an OPTIONAL 3G wireless broadband card: it is not a standard feature and setup will depend on the brand of internal 3G broadband card that is installed.

Compatible internal 3G mini-card may be quite expensive and using an external device (such as Pocket Wifi which is a 'MIFI' device which can conveniently be connected to your PC/Laptop via a secure Wifi connection) might be a better alternative.

Hope it helps.

I have problem with fujitsu s211o,it cant connect to internet by wifi,only land line,i checked at diver manage,i saw problem from atheros..i downlaoded and installed...but computer showed "found new...


Your S2110 uses an Atheros SuperAG Mini PCI wireless card, it's located underneath its keyboard. Assuming this card has worked before, then it'd probably failed. I'd remove it and reseat it first. But you first have to dig the keyboard out and it's a little tricky but someone else had posted the S2110's keyboard replacement procedure on-line and here's the link (you're not replacing the KB but you can follow these steps to get it out of the way):

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-keyboard-fujitsu-lifebook-s2110-laptop/

If you've reseated the Atheros card and it's still doing the same deal, then it's likely bad and you can replace it. You can get the exact model of the Atheros card and see if you can find the exact same one on eBay (that'd be your best bet); or you can get some other card (such as a Dell-branded Intel 2200bg Mini-PCI Wireless Card, drivers can be downloaded directly from Intel's support site) if you have trouble finding an exact Atheros replacement. The cost of such a card should be $10 or less.

Of course, there are other alternatives, too, such as a USB wireless device or a PCMCIA wireless card, which are just plug and play. The problem with such alternatives is that they'll be more cumbersome since they protrude externally and stick out like sore thumbs - which can cause a whole new set of problems.

My preference would be to keep the wireless internal (use the Mini-PCI).

I bought a new laptop and I cant work my webcam! It wont work at all!


Most new mini laptop have their drivers and software in a second partition on your system (or on the Hard disk drive C:), So all you need to do is Open the second partition (D:) or your drive C: and look for a folder named: Setup/Backup/SWSetup/Software/etc.

Open the folder and search for WEBCAM folder or Webcam driver,

Then run the setup, that should solve the problem.

Else you go to the manufacturer's website; under Support & Download to download the driver or alternative solution.

Can I download movies on my acer mini notebook watch with no wifi


without wifi your going to need some sort of internet access to download anything, check the sides for an Ethernet port, plug it in, do your business.
after you have it downloaded however, you dont need any internet at all to actually watch a movie. unless its streaming =)
hope that helps.

NO!

Dont do it.

I used to work for a dialup ISP and we sent out our setup software on those minis.

We got some screamers calling us over that.

Cant say I blame them.

Apple is working on an adapter for their PCs and the Wii can accept Gamecube minidiscs but the vast majority of slot loaders will happily eat your mini and refuse to give it back , necessitating expensive repairs to get it to work again.
