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.

I continually loose connection to my wireless connection with my home router and also at hotels I stay at. it will just drop the connection for no apparent reason


Laptops have an internal wireless antenna that receives the signal from the wireless router/access point. The performance of these wireless cards varies widely from manufacturer to manufacturer and sometimes even from model to model in the same brand. Issues effecting reception are distance between laptop to router, obstructions (many commercial buildings use metal studs which can significantly reduce signal strength), electrical interferance and other things.
While there's not really any way to boost the reception of the wireless card in your laptop, you CAN purchase what are called 'hi-gain' wireless cards from various manufacturers such as Netgear, Linksys, and many others. These so called hi gain antennas can pick up a signal from as far away as 1/4 mile in some cases. If you can't figure out what's causing the problem with your laptops' wireless card, purchasing one of these cards might be a good solution for you.
Best of luck! Hope this helps!

Where is the wireless antenna on a Latitude D610? I can't get the wireless internet option to work, and my computer suggested it could be the antenna.


Hello there,
There is actually no antenna. What you need to do is to turn on the wireless capabilities using the switch. All you have to do is to press the Fn key + the F2 key.
Good luck! Let me know if you have further questions.

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.

Can't connect to a wireless network


It is likely the problem is with the battery or the charger.

It is not provding the correct supply to let the laptop work.

You will have to check if the charger circuit on the laptop is working properly. Buying a new battery might solve it but an expensive experiment.

Won't be a cheap solution unless you are lucky and get one on loan.

Can't get wireless to connect


Depending on your OS, you could check the device mang. and if your 802.b wireless is not found, look for other flags or problems.
Turn off your wireless switch and remove and re-install your network system.
If after completed, you do not see the wireless install when loading, remove the wireless card and try again, removing from device mamg., re-booting and re-installing wireless card.
Sometimes the wireless card looses connection and needs to be physically removed, system re-booted and re-installed to work.
If that does not work, try exchanging the wireless card for another.
Removing the entire network from the system and re-booting is the best way. Shoot down after re-booting and re-install wireless card.
Restart unit, if it see's the wireless card, it will show loading network device. If it does not see the card, it will not load it.
Hope this helps
