Overview

PCMCIA (cardbus) cards are used on a variety of laptops and have a huge range of uses. They have been used for GPRS modems, wireless LANS, Bluetooth adapters, CardBus hard drives, FireWire/USB host controllers, Serial-ATA host controllers, LAN adapters, and more. Most desktop PC's don't come with PCMCIA card slots but using the PCI to PCMCIA controller card, you can use all of these cards and accessories on your PC, as well as laptops. All you need is a PCI slot which are found on most PCs.

Pros: Easy installation of hardware for most. My aircard was readily recognized by the XP operating system.

Cons: My aircard was recognized by the OS but not an updated VZAccess Manager software. Several different scenerios were tried until a working, usable internet was obtained. This was done by trial and error as that my hardware/software combination was either unique or just me. The same aircard and access software works great with any laptop PCMCIA slots I've tried, however there are apparently substantial obstables to overcome if this combination

Other: Computer novices would probably be at a loss upon installation and usage with the aircard software. Even with an experienced problem techie a novice would probably have returned this device using this aircard/access software combination. However an expert would have probably solved it in minutes versus the hours it took me :~I I even considered becoming a mac user again (ages ago) after a dozen or so reboots into this installation but I don't just want to throw away my older PC's and buy a new one - this is macintoshes technical support answer for everything -"don't bother to update just throw it away and buy a cheap new $2500 mac". Sorry mac users but I can't afford to go back to mac and I don't like Apples superiorty complex. Maybe I should try Linux but I would hate the learning curve involved there.

Question:

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.
