I am considering purchasing an Alltel Huawei EC360 wireless internet PCMCIA type II card to use on a laptop. I would also like to be able to use it on my Dell desktop. Will this card allow me to do this? Also, is there any performance loss with this type of setup?


Answer:

Yes, this card is compatible with virtually all PCMCIA cards and will allow you to add a PCMCIA port to your desktop with no loss in performance or quality. All you need is an open PCI slot on your desktop.

Question:

So will this work to allow me to take my Verizon 5750 PCMCIA WWLAN Wireless card that I use now in my laptop and plug into this unit that is installed in my home Desktop and have wireless Internet access from my Desktop?


Answer:

Yes, that is a common use for this adapter. The only drawback is that removing the PCMCIA card from the desktop requires you to get to the back of the desktop, but if you either have easy access to the back or don't need to remove it often this is the perfect solution.

Question:

I have purchased 2 pci to pcmcia cards from a different distributor, but my computer wont boot. Is this compatible with my Dell Inspiron 530? thanks


Answer:

This card uses an 'ene' chipset. If your previously purchased cards do as well, then this will most likely have the same results. There is no known reason why this would not work with your PC.
