I believe your laptop has a built in Wi-fi. You'll just need to go to a hot spot with free wifi service like Starbucks, Airport, Coffee shop and something like that.

To connect to an available wireless network

For WIn XP:

1. Right-click the little computer icon that says wireless network at the bottom right-hand by the clock and select "View Available Wireless Network". You can see there a name of an available wireless service, just double-click the one that says unsecured wireless network. That should do it. You should be able to go online.

For Windows Vista

1. Right-Click the computer icon at the bottom right hand by the time and select "Connect to a Network"
2. Look for a network name without security or password and just double-click it. Internet should work now on your laptop.

What wireless adaptor would you recommend for Acer Travel Mate 212TX


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A USB wireless adapter uses the same 3G mobile/cell phone network and can be separately or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses a wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

If you want to have Internet access while you are travelling, then I suggest you get a laptop with a 3G USB wireless adapter (this uses the existing mobile phone network) with an Internet Service Provider that can give you the coverage in the areas you want to travel.
I suggest you get a printer that connects to the laptop using an USB cable.
I also suggest you get a power inverter to convert 12volts to mains voltage so you can use your laptop away from mains supply.
or
You can a 12volts power converter to the voltage requirements of your laptop instead of a power inverter.

Internet anywhere


Your best solution would be to purchase a data package from one of the top Wireless phone providers. They have modems that access their wireless networks, and enable you to transfer data at reasonably good speeds in most locations across the country. Regular Wi-Fi is not going to be available in as many locations as the wireless data network is, so if connectivity is crucial you'll want the wireless data network. Most of the wireless plans are between $59 and $99 per month depending on how much data you want to transfer.

good luck

Card slot? and wireless internet.


Hi Jenny,

Most laptops would have a slot on the left side for PCMCIA, a standard for small, credit card-sized devices. Often actually, there would be two (2) of them, one on top of the other with a plastic dummy card inserted. These cards could be an add-on modem, NIC/LAN, WiFin even a USB hub or anything else that is PC compatible.

As to whether USB is better than PCMCIA, to my knowledge, USB has a better data transfer speed and to my experience, USB has better radio signals for WiFi. So I guess, USB wins hands down.

Re wireless Internet for interstate travel - honestly no idea, I am across the globe where you are. But as a rule of thumb, if you are getting a subscription with an ISP, then it should be one that provides WiFi Internet in as many states/areas that you intend to travel. Additionally, their coverage (footprint) should be the biggest/widest possible. However, to my understanding, there are a lot of hotspots in most cities.states that do provide free open access through their system.

Incidentally, there are ISPs that provide Internet connectivity using cellphone technology (3G) and presumably, there would be Internet wherever there is a mobile phone signal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
