"revamping" our daughter's old lap top ( seems like we , the parents, are inheriting the children's "hand me down" electronics!) and wanted to go wireless-so found this online and just plugged it in ( after loading the software first) and it works great!
Pros:Ease of use...,just "plug and play"
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Most laptop notebook computers have special expansions slots for adding options to your laptops, such as PCMCIA slots, PC Card slots, ExpressCard slots.
If you are confused by the words such as: PCMCIA, PC Card, CardBus, ExpressCard, ExpressCard/34, ExpressCard/54,
