  1. I just got a laptop and a wireless network card. I installed the card (slide it in the right slot) and put in the drivers but i still cannot connect to the internet. I'm sure there's a step i'm missing but the place i got the wireless network card from didn't give any instructions.

    Is there more to it then just plugging in the card and downloadin the drivers?

    thanks!

    There are lots of steps missing..

    "cannot connect" means what? No, your computer will not magically obtain a wireless internet connection the second you install a wireless network card.

    What exactly did you try? Do you actually have some device providing you the wireless service? :p

    :approve: my thought exactly last night when I almost replied!

    I feel like just ignoring posts with no information but then I think that would be a bit harsh :rolleyes:
