Old Laptop -Virgin Media- Powerline- Network Adapt

  COLFY 16:21 15 Oct 09

Old Samsung laptop VM7000.No Network Adapter. Shoud connect to Virgin Media using cable to router via Belkin Powerline system. Would a PCI Card with wireless, if plugged, in provide necessary Network Adapter to work with Powerline which has LAN cable into USB via adapter.

Not all on this page are PCMCIA card look before you buy, This should be okay from Maplins click here Also check before you buy that they have correct driver support for you Operating System i.e XP etc

Wireless should also work if you first check out that it as correct Driver Support for OS

Thank you for your very fast solution. Have checked Maplin and the one you suggest seems to be a possible. The laptop has 2 PC-Card Slot Types I II and III, so all should go well.

Thank you very much.
