Compaq has an evil bios which only allows certain wireless cards. I would reccomend the Intel Wireless 2200 A/B/G mini-pci card. That is the best for your laptop that they would allow.

    It would cost about 20 dollars on ebay.

I need to find a wireless internet card for an Acer AM5100-U5301A Desktop Computer


May I suggest a Wireless USB Adapter?

Just an example. Not advertising for manufacturer, nor website.

This is what I use on my lappy. Cost me around $70 at 'wally world'.
Note the price of it online.
Also came out before the suggestion I posted above.
(In my 'defense', lol!)

Moore's Law, to paraphrase, states computing power doubles every 18 months. It actually has dropped to every 11 months.
Silicon will be obsolete in about 10-20 years. Time for new technology.


Cannot connect to the internet, lappy says "no network adapter installed and configured.

First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Hello, I got Toshiba satellite_A215-S7413. All I got to see is its battery consumption is really heavy. This ages battery earlier. The culprits are 1) Processor 2) Wireless Card 3) CCFL Backlite. I...

Owing to age of laptop, I would not try the change over to LED, unless you have a compatible graphics lead/connection.
You can upgrade to 2x2gb ram (4gb total)
You could try a small wireless dongle like this
Batteries on these older laptops would be good for up to two hours when new- so I don't think you will do much better unless you can find an upgraded battery like this 9 cell battery, instead of the usual 6-cell one
As for the processor, again, the motherboard determines what can be done, and from what I can tell, it will make little difference , even if you could find one.

My lappy is not dectecteing any broadband

please enable your wireless card with the wireless on of switch if your having problems to find it give us the model and the brand we will try to help you

Wireless Card not working

Call the Hp Tech Support for the Paid Motherboard Replacement or now time to look for a NEW LAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laptop states wireless adapter not installed and configured? worked before.

To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.

How do i turn on the internal wireless internet

Your lappy most likely will not have wireless internet built in but it will have a wireless network adapter. There will be a switch somewhere on the laptop case (often a slide switch near the case lock) and this needs to be turned on to activate the wireless card.

Sony VAIO internal wireless driver causes computer to lock up

There is a possibility you have a faulty wireless card. I would go with a external PCMCIA wireless card. Don't forget to disable the internal wireless card in the BIOS.

check in control panel if wireless drivers are installed.If not, they should be installed first. If still under warranty, just return to your vendor and ask to solve it.
