Wireless option for Latitude C610

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Just purchased a Latitude C610 from DFS. No OS. Plan to install W2K and
would like to add wireless. I have two questions. First any known problems I
might run into installing win 2K on this machine. Second, I know this model
does not have internal wireless option (think the D series is needed for
this) any recommendations from the group for wireless card?

Thank You
Howard

    I thought all the c610s and c640s had a wireless feature. I have both
    with the wireless card.

    Thank you for the link and reply. Still have a question? Did you install
    this in a C610? Where is the antenna? I didn't think the C series had an
    antenna built into the case.

    Thank You

    If you remove the door where you put the memory you will see the slot for
    the card. The antenna is there.
    I have installed on C610 & C640. Tim

    I got the card and am istalling it. Only problem is. There are two antenna
    connections on the card one labeled main and the other aux. There are two
    antenna leads in the PCI compartment one is long and the other short. They
    are not labeled. Connectors are the same and either one could reach either
    connector on the card. No info on the intel or Dell site. Do you know if it
    makes a difference which lead goes to which connector on the card?
    Thanks

    I just put wires on without crossing them. There are guides to tuck the
    wires in so they stay in place. It works ok for me. Tim
