Most hotels provide a service using different providers. Check with the hotel your staying at. It will work in the US and Canada.

The easiest way to connect to a wireless internet connection is to purchase a wireless networking card that fits in the PCMCIA slot. I would recommend a Linksys Adapter (WPC54G).

This particular model don't have a built in wireless card on it , it only has a Integrated Network Card for wired connection .

Want to get on internet with my lap top via wireless what card do i need for the inspirion 8100


first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.

Laptop (HP) has wireless setting... but I want to go on the road with it and use the internet while traveling in my motor home or auto. How do I do this. What equipment do I need? It is connection to my...


There is a couple of different ways to do this. 1- you can use the built in wireless in the computer at places that have free wifi ie... McDonald's, Wendy's, BurgerKing, Coffee shops, Malls, hotels, etc... most of these have free wifi. The plus side is it's free, the downside is you are restricted to finding a place with wifi. 2- you can go through your cell phone provider and purchase an air time PC card. With this card you can go on line anywhere anytime as long as you have a signal, same as your cell. I know that just about every hotel/motel out there has free wifi now, and my folks like to travel alot in their motor home, and they told me that they see more and more camp grounds with wifi.

Connecting to internect


Hi Linda........
1. You can disconnect the Rj45 cable from the PC & connect
it directly to your notebook's Rj45 port. You should have access to the internet if a minute or two.
2. if you want access to both, Pc & notebook you'll need a wireless router. Like the link below. Click it.
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
You can find these types of wireless routers at places like Wallmart & Best Buy. They come in even smaller packages.
With the software that is included you'll be connected to the internet in no time. Linksys also provides security so someone near to your home can not tap your internet service & get a free ride. Linksys provides setup assistance from day one.
Hope this helps you Linda!
