My old laptop died, so I bought a "new" one at a yard sale (HP Pavilion ZE5300) - 10 years old . Got it running pretty good after I cleaned a bunch of crap off and out of it.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have a wireless antenna . It came with a Netgear PCI wireless card - which the seller said didn't work, and I had a 2Wire one that was never used.
I can't get EITHER one to work - DL'd drivers for each one, etc. but neither one will even light up. Either something (firewall/antivirus?) is blocking them from working, which is what some of my research indicates, or the slot is bad.
Make sure the PCMCIA card you have is compatible with the laptop, I seem to remember there being a some difference in devices, some 16 bit and some 32 bit. If the card slot wont work you may be able to find a USB 1.1 wireless adapter that will work.
