Dear Amy -

I looked up the Verizon Wireless card, and found that its a normal PCMCIA(PC Card) type adapter. This is a good thing; it means that you can purchase just about ANY laptop that has a standard PC Card slot(NOT Mini PC Card), and it should be compatible (You might, however, find compatibility issues with a Macintosh system.)

Keep in mind you will need to install the drivers for the card on any new system, and a new laptop is likely to come preloaded with Wondows Vista, so you will need a Vista compatible driver.

You can download any necessary drivers here:

I hope this helps you!

I have toshiba satellite a105 i wanted to know if it have wireless internert or do i need a verizon wireless chip


The Toshiba A105 comes with a wireless card. On the bottom of the laptop there is a door toward the front middle and behind that door you can see a wireless card that has the black and white wires going to it.

There is also a on/off switch that enables the wireless card as well, its either on the left or right hand side of the laptop.

Just make sure the switch is turned on and go into the device manager and underneath where it says network adapters, you should see the wireless card listed in there.

Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

Re: the Asus Eee PC 900 Notebook with a Linux operating system and am unable to connect. It will detect my wireless router (Cradlepoint MBR1000 using Verizon USB720). I upgraded to the Verizon USB 760...


what version of linux are you using? If it's one that came preinstalled with the laptop I suggest looking at Ubuntu netbook edition, *very* capable OS, if that can't handle it nothing will.

Wireless connection is detected, but will not connect


If your other laptop is working fine, then have a look at the configuration of the wireless card and use the same configuration on the one that is not working.
Depending upon your wireless card make there is a program that enable you to setup the wireless card. Go to Start - Programs to locate this program. If your wireless card is built-in refer to your Acer manual.
Encryption is setup on the wireless router and these settings are also used to configure the wireless card. If the encryption is already setup, changing the encryption will affect your other wireless card, therefore all the wireless cards will need to be reconfigured with the new encryption to work with the wireless router.

Hello


most laptops come with a manual antenna switch...just look around the body of the laptop...if not then a hot key with the antenna symbol should be available.

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
