Hi all,We have a wireless router at home (Virgin Media cable, 20MB: capable of 54MB) and the main PC is our home-based desktop.I have an old laptop at work, which I'd like to take home and connect to our network but it's not wi-fi enabled. So, I'd like advice on the best dongle please.The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1150 running Windows XP (professional I believe). It has two USB ports (not sure if they're USB 2 though) and a PCMCIA slot.A reasonably priced adaptor is what I'm looking for and preferably from somewhere accessible from where I am; i.e Maplin.Many thanks in advance.
Look at using a PCMCIA card seeing that there is only 2 USB portsD-Link Wireless 54Mbps PC Cardclick hereOr choose from these click here=|c:305|&Sort=1
Many thanks,There's a Maplin just up the road from me: do they do anything similar / suitable? I searched for D-link and they don't carry them.Thanks again.
Walk with the laptop and check out the type that they have as I am sure they will be able to advise you on the best one
Thanks ambra4,I took the laptop into Maplin as you suggested and they advised a range of PCMCIA cards. I got a Belkin one for £24.99 and it was installed and running within five minutes.Thanks again!
Glad to be of help Enjoy
