Great Wireless Card for older laptops

larryc, Amazon
9 January 2011
  • Summary: I was rebuilding an older XPpro laptop and needed the usb slots for other devices, so I researched PCMCIA wireless cards and found this product from Trendnet. I followed the setup instructions and the laptop was unable to "connect" to my home wireless.
