:tazz: Hi! I need a USB 2.0 controller card for my Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop. I have a 1.1 USB. But we travel in Mexico and it is sometimes a long way to the access points as they are just getting up and running with their WiFis. I have a Hawking HWL2 WiFi Locator Professional Edition to get a better distance. But it keeps telling me I need to have a USB 2.0 to get the speed that comes with the HWL2. Please direct me to where I can find one of these controllers and exactly what I need.
Thanks,

Hello,

Not exactly sure what you're looking for. A USB controller? Are you talking about a USB 2.0 PCMCIA card... or are you looking for a Wireless PCMCIA card. Your topic seems to indicate you need a Wireless card.

If so, HERE'S A GOOD ONE from Newegg.com. Works very well and the user interface is one of the best...

Also there is a Link for USB & IEEE 1394 Combo PCMCIA Laptop Card that has NEC USB Chipset & TI Chipset for IEEE 1394 Firewire – The TI Chipset is recommended for the IEEE 1394 - Note that the Firewire connection has – [1- ea] – [4 pin] & [6 pin] Connectors – for more – [Equipment Compatibility]

Also have included – [USB Info Link] that has info + Other Links for additional Info & USB Gear -
