Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook ?

Which adapter do I need to visit 'hotspots' w/my Inspiron 1000 ?

\015 I presently have dial-up (not by choice) and I would like to purchase an adapter so I can visit the local wifi hotspot so I can download stuff. The nearest cafe is 15 miles away, so that is not an option. I wouldn't be doing any banking there. The two that Dell suggest are really hard to find and they have been out of the Mini PCI for months.Oh, and there is no wifi 'switch' on either of my Inspiron 1000s.\015\012 Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

You can use this one $59 but will have to install it (not to hard), to make sure you don't already have one when booting up hit the F2 key enter the setup/bios menu and see if one is listed under wireless, if it shows one enabled.
\015\012if it is you can connect with it, there is no switch on these dells just a software switch.
\015\012this one slides in the side and sticks out link$31 as a cheaper option,

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
