Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Have brought a wireless card to go inside the laptop. Just not sure where it goes inside! There is a power supply cable and a long slot, but this is a tiny card and is far smaller than the slot, can it still go in there? Medion MIM2080


Answers :

Must admit I am not familiar with this brand and a bit of googling suggests that this model already has built in wireless. However, some forum postings suggested that it in fact doesn't and that the required mini wireless card (which may be what you have bought) connects to the mainboard via a removable cover on the underside of the laptop.

Never come across that before - I have always had PCMCIA wireless cards which are about the size of a fat credit card, and fit in the slot I think you are describing. Sorry, not much to go on. I suggest that you ask Medion Support:
