For the car charger what you need is an inverter. They have them just about everywhere these days, Walmart, Best Buy, etc... Make sure to get one that supplies at least the same or more Watts than what is written on the AC adapter of your notebook. Bring in the AC adapter to the store and the clerk will be able to point you to a proper inverter.

If you notebook is less than three years old it most likely has built in wireless. If you use wireless at home then you should be ok everywhere else. Most hotels, airports, malls have free or pay wireless Internet. From my Google searches I am certain your notebook has wireless.

If you want to be connected at all times without worrying about access to wireless Internet then you have to get a connection card from a cellular phone provider. Go visit your cell provider they will be able to help you, what you want is an Edge or HSDPA card or USB dongle for you notebook, be prepared to pay, the monthly fees for these are in the $100 per month range and if you go over your limit you can pay a lot more than that.

If your laptop doesn't have built in wireless, go to Walmart and purchase a universal wireless card. They have both USB and bus-port cards, ranging from $25 to $125. The $25 to $40 range will work just fine. I recently took my parents and daughter to Disney World. We drove from Missouri, and I found that almost every hotel/motel has wireless. As far as a car adapter, they are expensive, around $135. While you're at Walmart, they have a Black & Decker inverter that plugs into a cigarette lighter on one end and has a couple of regular AC plugs on the other, for around $20. They work great, and you can use the money you saved on your vacation. Hope this helps and enjoy your vacation.

This is difficult to answer. Most of these wireless cards plug into a multi- conductor socket on the board. The nly external connections would be the antenna's and there are usually two. These are a very small diameter cable that terminate in a small, flat connector that is about an 1/8 of an inch in diameter. If these get switched, then there shouldn't be a problem. If these are power connectors, then the card may be damaged.

If would go to control panel, system, and devices (or hardware) and see what comes up for the wireless adapter. The chances are good the there is a caution indicated for this device, which usually means that the driver is incorrect. Try completely unloading it, and then let Windows search the net for a new one.

Reset bios for samsung np200a5b


Resetting the bios in most laptops requires you to disassemble the unit.
For many of the samsung laptops you will need to power off the device, unplug it from the charger. (Leave battery plugged in)
Close the lid of the laptop and flip it over so it is resting on the back of the lcd screen.
On the bottom of the device there should be a small panel held in by a single screw. Unscrew this and set the plastic panel aside.
You should now see the wireless min-pci card. This is also held in place by 1 or 2 screws. Both antennas also connect to this card, The antenna connectors are fragile and may be damaged if handled roughly. Carefully lift the antenna connector from the wireless card.
remove the screw(s) holding the wireless card in place. Set the wireless card aside.
Under the wireless card you will see some metal pads on the motherboard, next to them it should read "RST" .
Short these two pads using tweezers or other metal object (DO NOT SHORT ANYTHING ELSE OR YOU MAY DAMAGE YOUR ENTIRE LAPTOP) the shorting process should be done for roughly 2-5 seconds.
The BIOS is now reset, any settings or passwords will be removed.
Reassemble the laptop being very careful with the wifi antenna connectors, they simply push on, but need to be positioned in the correct way before being pushed down. Tweezers may help greatly in this portion.

Once back together, flip back over and plug in charger.

If you do not see the "RST" lettering on your model, please contact samsung support or a certified repair shop to perform the reset for you.

Lightning in area. Cable issues ---resolved. Laptop wireless working fine. Desktop internet won't connect. Attempted restore. No go.


Most likely the power surge generated by the lighting has fried the network chip - you will have to replace the wireless card in the desktop. You can easily check for that by booting from a Linux Live-cd and try to use it in there.

There is a monitor icon in the lower right hand corner with a red x. When I right click it, it says no wireless connection. Then a bigger dialog box says make sure your wireless switch is on. Fn+F2 does...


Open the System Control Panel and click on Device Manager. Is your wireless card recognized by the system here? Does it have a yellow exclamation point on it? You can right-click on the device to bring up its properties. This will let you check whether the driver is loaded.

You may need to reinstall the wireless card driver.

If the wireless device is listed as missing or failed in the Device Manager, shut down the computer, remove the wireless card and reconnect it. This may clear up any connector contact issues. If the card connects to internal antenna wires, try to leave those connected when you do this - just rotate the antenna connectors a bit to scrub the contacts. The antenna connectors are very tiny slip-on coax connectors. It's a tricky business to get them seated without mashing them, so the less you mess with them the better.

If you are using a PCMCIA or PC-Card wireless transceiver, try it in the other PCMCIA slot.

I'm assuming you get your results within range of a known good wireless router.

If none of this works, it's time to try another wireless card.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.


that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.
