Hey there..., thanks in advance!
I have just replaced my old Dell laptop (w/integrated verizon wireless), but my new Dell Studio XPS 1640 does not have an integrated wireless card.
I have looked on the website, but don't know which wireless option to get.
My new laptop has Windows 7 OS (64 Bit)...
My options are as follows:
UMW190 Global USB Modem
AD3700 Global USB Modem
MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile HotSpot
PC770 2-in-1 Card & Express Card
Again, just don't know which one I need to select...
None of them state that they support Windows 7, however, I'm sure that they probably do, but I can't even see if they support 64 Bit OS. Then again, I may not even know what I am looking for..., so, again, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I would really appreciate if you could e-mail me directly if you have any comments and/or suggestions.
I'm new to this as well so can't offer much in the way of comparison advice, but I can let you know that the MiFi 2200 does work with Windows 7 64-bit. And it offers the ability to connect up to 5 computers to your mobile broadband, while the USB devices don't (by themselves).
I was talking to my IT guy yesterday & when we originally ordered this laptop from Dell..., they didn't have a compatible 64 bit integrated wireless card available... Well, that was just @ the beginning of Jan, however, I didn't receive my laptop from Dell until the end of Feb. Well, he just went & ordered another Dell laptop for another customer & they are now offering an integrated 64 bit integrated wireless card...
Sooooo..., I may need to check w/Dell, probide them w/my Service Tag # & see if they can offer me an integrated card...
Thanks again for the reply and if anyone out there can still answer my original question, it would be greatly appreciated...
