Need Assistance Please - Wireless Card or Options?

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:

USB760 Modem

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.


Thanks again;

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).

Thanks Opal...

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...
