The Mobilepro 780 does not have built-in wireless capabilities, but does have a full PCMCIA (PC Card) slot on the right side.

Your WPC11 is a commonly paired card with the MP7X0 (780,790, etc) series because it has Windows CE drivers easily available.

Other cards may be usable, but they must have drivers that are compatible with Windows CE 2.11 (on the 780) or whatever version is running (or possibly what os, if another was added, such as Linux ) AND run on a MIPS processor.

Well your going to have to check whether your device has inbuilt wireless capability (refer to manual). If it doesnt there are various expansion slot solutions like SD and Compact flash wireless cards.

What software or cords do I need to get/run in order to get files to transfer to/from the NEC Mobilepro 770, or even get internet?

The NEC Mobilepro 770 is a legacy device that was released in the early 2000s and uses Windows CE as its operating system. Since the device is no longer supported, it may be challenging to find software and drivers that are compatible with modern operating systems like Windows 10. Here are some steps you can take to transfer files and connect to the internet:
  1. Get the necessary cables: You'll need a USB cable to connect the Mobilepro 770 to your Windows 10 PC. The cable should have a USB Type-A connector on one end and a mini-USB connector on the other.
  2. Install ActiveSync: ActiveSync is software that allows you to synchronize files between your Mobilepro 770 and your PC. Unfortunately, ActiveSync is no longer available for download from Microsoft, but you may be able to find an archived version of the software on the internet. Install ActiveSync on your Windows 10 PC and connect your Mobilepro 770 to your PC using the USB cable. If the device is recognized, you should be able to transfer files between the two devices.
  3. Connect to the internet: The Mobilepro 770 has a built-in Ethernet port that you can use to connect to a wired network. To connect to the internet, you'll need an Ethernet cable and a wired network connection. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the Mobilepro 770's Ethernet port and the other end into your router or modem. You should be able to browse the internet using the Mobilepro 770's built-in web browser.
  4. Install additional software: The Mobilepro 770 comes with a basic set of software, but you may want to install additional software to make the device more useful. You can download and install software from the internet, but make sure it's compatible with Windows CE and the Mobilepro 770.
Keep in mind that the Mobilepro 770 is a legacy device, and its performance and capabilities may be limited compared to modern devices. It's also possible that some of the software and drivers you need may no longer be available or supported.
