Help with Acer TravelMate 2700

High Guys,
I would like to know how difficult it would be to insert an internal wi-fi card into my laptop, does it fit under anywhere easy to access or as someone has told me the case has to be cracked open. The later seems a little bit drastic.

wouldnt it be easier to get an external one ? like a usb wifi

I allready have one, but the laptop is always on the move and there is a genuine risk of it being broken

Has the laptop not got a pcmcia slot to take a wifi pcmcia card? These slot into the side of the case. click here

Is it the 2700 or a 270 travelmate.

It is the TravelMate 2700 and yes I do have a slot for a card but as I have stated, the pc is continualy being moved and there is a danger that the bit that sticks out will be damaged, thats why I would like to fit an internal one.

There is no chance of fitting an internal one.

If that is the case, why do they put the 2 buttons on the front one for bluetooth and the other for wi-fi ?

  ~#@@#~ 16:47 12 Jun 2007

That is probably because the laptop has built in wifi and bluetooth. Have you used the built in wifi?

It has the buttons but no built in bluetooth or wi-fi, thats why I want to now how to fit one.

Acer laptops are pretty well designed, there is a large panel underneath which will house the memory, processor etc, there will be a slot for a wifi card or whatever.
taking the bottom cover off can be a bit dawnting but i have supplied and upgraded numberous Acer laptops and they are great to work with, just get the right sized screwdriver and don't damage the heads.

Thanks dcnewton, I will power down the system and have a look. I will post back soon.
