Do you find that your laptop is accessing the Internet slow? If your laptop is 4+ years old, chances are your internal wireless card is still on the slower 11 mb of speed. Today, we are on 54 mb of speed, which is approximately 5x faster. So, if your laptop is still on 11 mb, then your connection to the Internet can seem slower than modern laptops. Also, your wireless signal could be failing slowly.
What’s the computer fix? Buy a wireless PC card and slide it into one of your available slots. You can buy a Linksys wireless G card which is pretty stable one. Or you can pump it up a notch to the N series which is even faster than the G’s 54 mb. These cards usually cost $70 – 95 and are well worth it to speed up your wireless Internet.
