    Wireless card
    I'm moving my computer upstairs and want to know if I can install a wireless card? The reason I'm asking is I have a hp pavilion s7310n slimline desktops, and I'm not sure if I need a special card cause its so small? Omar

    They Make PC MCIA, and USB wireless adapters. Against the pros advice, (because of potential "Bugs"). I chose 802.11N, supposed to be faster, further, more secure.
    My neighbor bought USB Adapter for his wireless g router. After couple of hours trying unsuccessfully to install, Tech support asked if there was a button at the top to activate,
    After closely looking saw button to activate wireless. I got the built in adapter going.
    He gave me the USB adapter. It is spare. I have "N" card, works great.
