want wireless networking but only have pci express slot
Posted on 2006-05-24
I just purchased my first over priced notebook from comp usa. It was a HP pavillion notebook dv1000 series. I then skipped over to cingular to buy a wireless network card. The card didn't fit. Come to find out there is only a pci express opening on my notebook. One technician told me that I may be able to find an adaptor. Another technician told me that the wireless card technology had not caught up to the pci express standard or something of that nature. I need a solution because I travel a lot and the hot spot hunting thing is not working for me.
I did read an article where IBM had or is still (couldn't find one for sale) developing a Intel Pro/Wireless 394ABG mini pci express adaptor for their thinkpad notebooks. If anyone could help me out here I would really be greatful.
