Wireless internet w/ cell phone company air cardLocked
We live and work in rural areas where DSL internet is not available. We have high speed cable int., but since Cox became Suddenlink, we’re always down and cust. support is horrible. We’re thinking about a Centennial Wireless air card (Sierra Card 775) for our laptops and desktops (work). I can not find a consistent answer to these things:
1) Is there or is there not an adapter that attaches to the “no USB port” desktops into which the air card can plug?
2) The laptop needs a PC MIA Type II slot to be compatible with the air card. The new Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop that I was just about to order has an Express card slot, making it incompatible. Should I start over in my search for a new laptop, or is there another option that I have not thought of?
We are not computer savvy, so please use simple folk language.
Thanks so much!
