hi all i got a cheepo laptop last year and am now wondering if i can use it to get internet access when away from home? it has no obvious slots for cards so the question is can you get wireless cards that plug into a usb ?


thanks in advance.

Isn't the traditional way to use an external modem?

A wireless card is only going to give you internet access if you are near a hotspot. Have a look here click here

Yes you can get wireless adaptors which plug into your USB port.

Have a look on dabs (click here) under networking and type in USB in the search box.
