Hi there

I currently have 2 Desktops and a lapto that I am trying to set up a wireless network. The desktops Im fine with but the laptop Im having trouble. Basically I have an old Dell LATITUDE ppl laptop that I dont think is wireless enabled. Now the problem is, what do I need to buy to make it enabled and how do I fit it.

Please Help

Many thanks

If it has a PCMCIA slot something like click here

The easiest way of doing this is to by a Wireless Network Laptop Card from any good Computer Shop, expect to pay around £20+

This slots into the PCMIA slot on the side of your laptop.

I have ised Belkin ones and they are extremely easy to use, just follow the instructions.

is the PCMCIA slot the one where you put an ethernet card.

Yes, As far as I know Belkin are compatible with everything. They are also really helpful if you have a problem and are contactable on an 0800 number.
