Having problems with your Compaq Armada E500 Notebook ?

Can the Compaq Armada E500 go wireless?

\015 I currently have Windows XP Professional running on it and I found an old Ethernet Adapter, Xircom CreditCard Ethernet II Adapter (CE2, PS-CE2-10) to be exact and I'm having a tough time connecting it to my home wireless network. See when I plug the card it recognizes it as a network device and attempts to get a connection but always fails and says it has limited to no connectivity. But what I'm confused about is that it doesn't actually search for any networks. So my question is, is this old laptop even capable of getting a wireless connnection and should I just get a new card or is the laptop simply unable to make wireless connections?\015

Answers :

any laptop has the capability to use wireless connection, if you connect to that laptop a compatible wireless card and install its drivers( the cd/dvd that comes with the wireless card)

to check if this card is ok or not try using it on some other laptop see if it works there and gets the networks

I've bought recentlly a wireless adaptor TP-Link, 150Mbps Wireless Lite N. I installed the drivers from the CD but when I plug in the adaptor (USB) the computer gives me a blue screen saying that it has a problem with athuw.sys and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA message.
