General Networking/Lan/Wan/Internet problems



I have a 2008 laptop that's not wifi ready. It doesn't have wifi.

How do I get an internet connection on it, and what are all the things I need to connect to the internet on my laptop.

Thank you.


What you will need to do is verify what type of ports your laptop has available. IE: USB port or PCMCIA slot. Then once you have that you will need to purchase a wireless network card that fits one of the open slots on your laptop.
Once you have that installed you will need to follow manufacturers directions to get the driver installed and you should be good to go!

PS: your local computers stores will be able to have a look at your laptop and get you what you need.
