How do I install a wireless card and where can I get installation help?
Basic instructions for installing a wireless card:
Depending on your card, you may need to install your driver cd first. For more information, please read the instruction manual.
After installation of drivers, make sure the computer is turned OFF. Locate the cardbus slot on your laptop. Gently insert your wireless adapter into the slot. Once the card is securely installed into the cadbus, you may now turn on your computer. Your card should now be recognized by your operation system, and you should be able to get on available wireless networks.
