Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook ?

Does the dell inspiron 1100 have a wireless card or capability built in? if so how do i enable it?

Answers :

There is no built in wifi support. You would have to purchase a PCMCIA wifi card, OR, you can get a USB wifi adapter. (If you choose the adapter, be careful, you can break the USB ports if your are clumsy).

The BEST option is the PCMCIA card. you can likely use one that is wifi only, or you may seek to get one that is wifi and cellular (contact your cell provider for such a card and subscription rates).
