Internet for laptop in the woods

Hi!
I need to hook up my hp laptop to the internet when I am camping. I heard that there is some kind of card that I can buy serviced through phone providers that will enable me to establish a connection anywhere that I can get service.

Do you know what the card is called? I was told best buy sold them.

Thanks

No sim card installed


Hello
The SIM tray near the battery allows you to connect to Internet or Dial. Sometime the Laptop/Netbook doesn't allow you to access your laptop/netbook. I suggest reseting your laptop will help you.

HP pavilion entertainment laptop monitor will not come on. Laptop making sounds like it is downloading something but no disc in tray, not connected to internet.


Your computer is becoming way too hot and the soder between your graphic card and monitor is melting. You need to get your computer opened and reheat your graphic card ( I usually use a heat gun.) Make sure you do not heat it too much as you could screw up your graphic card. Once it is done, just hook the battery, ram, powering unit and hook-up your screen to see if your screen works. If it works then you need to place 2 copper shims between the heat sink contact points with your processor and graphic card to keep everything at a normal temperature. Then reassemble your computer.

Why should i bring a laptop to the woods? like, whats a good reaons?


Laptop is good to bring with you since this is portable. However, if you bring that in the woods, there are advantages and disadvantages that you have to consider. First, the advantages, you can do your assignment while in camping. If you want to combat boredom, you can play games installed in your laptop. If you have usb modem, you can connect to the internet, and if you are lost, you can contact your parents or anyone who can help u, police, forest ranger and the like. You can easily upload pictures when you do picture taking in the woods. Second, the disadvantages, since it is a delicate electronic device, you should handle it with care, laptop is also a hot stuff for a thief, laptop can be damaged by rain and water spills. I mean those are some, but it depends on your judgment of course. I just hope my infos help u in a way.

I would like to connect my laptop to the internet is there a coax cord for that


There are a few ways to connect a laptop to the internet. First, there's hard-line (such as a modem cord, or phone-cable) and with a laptop, that's it unless you have a wireless card. I do believe your model (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=430816&taskId=135) has a wireless card, but as you can see there are MANY versions of the 2200! For the most part, your particular exact model won't matter.

If you have wireless somewhere, all you need is the access codes if there is security on the wireless networks.
If you don't have wireless, and don't have internet service at the place you wish to connect at (such as your home) and have not set that up yet, you have a few options
1) Get internet at that place (such as your house; you'll call and they'll come install it, and usually rent or sell you a modem of some kind. The sales reps usually can explain what they offer and tell you what would work best).
2) Call a cell phone company and see if they offer a service of the same kind, either at the house OR via a phone/your current phone service (etc). Often this entails a cable from your laptop to the phone, or a SIM card in the laptop, or a PCMCIA card (check ebay for these, before you buy into a plan, some might be outdated so get informed).
3) Dig around; there's tools out there that one can use to make a wireless PCMCIA or express card or USB wireless device that can uplink to a satelite (usually this is more expensive). Also youtube might have some information on how to get free internet.

You will need to get internet either in a public "wifi hotspot" (often free at public libraries or coffee shops in the USA), or via a hardware line to your residence.

There isn't a way to plug a laptop in directly to the internet at a residence without some kind of modem, though you CAN often use the telephone lines directly into a PC to use software for faxing and telephone stuff.

good luck!

Hai i have presario c700 C797VU laptop model. s/n: CND8274GJC p/n: FF413PA#ACU i need sound card driver,video card driver,wireless driver,webcam driver,internal mike driver,usb mass storage driver


Hi,,for your own security,,i would suggest that you do not put the serials of your computer up on the internet.
As to your problem, if you can use someone else's computer with a CD burner,,,you can go to the HP Compaq web site and download all the drivers that you need.
and then transfer them to your laptop.
Also,,if you can access the internet from your laptop,,you can download the drivers from HP

THE INTERNET


Uninstall your wireless NIC and restart your computer, that will reset your card. If that dosent work, get a external Wireless card and hook a antenna to increase your signal, which also might be your problem. Or just pay for internet?
