Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCG-F520 Notebook ?

Want to try to utilize an old sony Vaio PCG-F520

\015 Is there anyway I can upgrade my old Vaio and use it with wireless as just a computer to get online. and if so what type of speed can I expect. I have cable wireless. Thanks\015

Answers :

OK you can certainly add wireless to this machine. But be careful which type you buy. If this machine has windows 98 you have to ensure the wireless adaptor will be compatible. . you have two choices for the adepter type either USB or PCMCIA (aka PC Card) I'd go for the PCMCIA version, it will be more likely to play well with the older system. Also, Dont buy a MIMO card, a simple 802.11B or 802.11G compatible card will work. these are in the sub $40 price.
\015\012
\015\012Dont attempt to install XP or VIsta on this PC, it will be unbearably slow. Stick with 98 or better yet windows 2000.
