I have just been given an old Dell Latitude C510/C610 Laptop, Model PP01L by my mate to help get him started with the internet.We were wondering what is the best option for a WI-FI card for this model Lappy? I explained to him that he could get a plug in dongle type, but he said he would prefer something built in so he couldn't lose it or break it. We have looked on Youtube and think we would be able to install it ourselves to keep cost down, as we are both on a pension.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
The alternative would be a PCMCIA card like this. Either that or the USB dongle otl1 suggested would be fine. Yes, both stick out somewhat - but both will be significantly easier to install than taking the laptop apart to try to fit one internally - f, indeed, that's possible.
Thanks everyone for your input. Looks like we`re gonna have to go for the dongle/slot-card type, as the internal card has been removed & we can only find used ones on e-Bay that don't come with a install drive cd.
Appaloosa62: if you're still determined to go in that direction, why not identify the item(s) you're interested in on eBay, then find the manufacturer's web site to see if the drivers can be downloaded? A driver CD is generally far from essential.
