Default Will a 5 year old Dell note book allow an internal wireless card ?

I sure would like an internal wireless card vs the card that sticks out the pcmcia slot.

its a Latitude CpX

thanks steve

PS Ive never opened the back of a notebook computer.

Default ignorance

Cause I wouldnt know what a wireless dongle even looks like.

Yesterday I bought on ebay a Netgear wireless "G" card.

In addition to answer your question:
1) I would prefer something that doesnt make the computer mad when
I pull it out to put it in my case.

2) Internal wouldnt stick out like a cireless card.

3) An internal wireless card wouldnt get lost.

I appreciate the reply very much none the less.

sincerely

Default CPX no internal wireless available

Recon-
I have done a few searches and concur you are right.

The latitude CPX cant fit in an internal modem.

I think the G Card i ordered by Netgear will be fine.
