Could somebody please tell me if it is possible to fit a wireless card reader in my laptop as it does not already have wireless features. The reason for me wanting to install a wireless card reader is that i dont really want a USB stick hanging out of my laptop anymore.

Thank you

You may be able to fit a PCMCIA card, an internal card, or compact flash sized wireless adaptor depending on your laptop spec

OK thats a PCmcia card. you can fit one for about £12.00 assuming that you have a PCMCIA slot, of course. I use a TP link one now instead of previous Belkin USB type and it it very good.

Yes that will connect you to the Internet Wireless but it still sticks out, but not as much as a USB WiFi

Thanks for the replies. The laptop does not have a slot for the card but i was wondering if it would be possible to fit one of these slots.
