Most build in wireless card in laptops are factory installed as the antenna has to be install

around the monitor screen frame and connected to the wireless card

If the laptop does not have a build in wireless card or a PCMCIA slot the only choice you

have is a USB Wireless Adapter

You sure that there is not a PCMCIA slot on the laptop it have a blanking plate install in

the slot and there is a small button that you have to press and the button will pop out, you

now push back in the button and the blanking plate will pop out

If there is a PCMCIA slot you can use a PCMCIA Wireless-G 54Mbps Notebook

Adapter as the type you on the site you listed

Make sure you get the right one for your laptop as there is two size for laptops the latest

one is a Wireless Express Card Adapter which is much narrow than the older model

No i do not have the slot for a PC card.
Is it possible at all to install one or is my only option to use a USB stick?
