Inspiron 5150: which wireless PCMCIA card do you recommend?

Discussion in 'Dell' started by Dennis Demont, May 18, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I am currently using a Sitecom wireless network card with my Inspiron 5150.
    To make a long story short: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
    Sometimes I have access to the internet, sometimes I don't.
    The laptop is almost brand new, WinXP installed and no settings changed.
    I didn't go for the Dell TrueMobile solution when I got the machine, because
    at that point, I was not planning to go wireless. Wish I had...

    I'm running a 802.11b network using a Draytek Vigor 2600We router. I have
    two desktops, also on Sitecom wireless cards, and these both work fine. So
    it's not the router. Settings on all machine are the same, so I suspect it's
    the quality of the wireless card. Therefore, I want to try a different
    brand. What do you recommend?

    I use a D-Link 650+ on my 5100. Works great.
