    It's PCMCIA. You can get a PCI -> PCMCIA adapter. If you've already used the PCI slot on your M10000 you can get a USB -> PCMCIA adatper. I don't know where you could buy just a PCMCIA -> USB adapter but there's one inside my Orinoco USB wLAN adapter.

      Thanks.

      I haven't used the pci slot, but I wonder if the pci to pcmcia adapter will fit inside my Morex case.

      Can anyone suggest a small adapter?

        How often are you planning to surf in your car? Or is this business related?
        If you don't surf much... Save yourself some money. Phones with datacables can do exactly what this thing is doing.

        Search the web or here a bit and I think you know what I mean.

            if i didn't have my sprint cellphone with unlimited internet i would totally go for this kind of thing. Just use take the pcmcia card everywhere you go. Use it in your car while your in it, and in your laptop while your out of the car.

              I currently have AT&T for my cellphone service but their data rates are ridiculous. I want to keep AT&T for my phone because I need the coverage and I am currently under contract. I am able to connect my Motorola V600 to my carputer via bluetooth with my AT&T service, but as I mentioned above, the rates are unreasonable.

              Maybe a cheap phone from T-Mobile with bluetooth is what I need? Could be cheaper than buying the card and adapter from T-Mobile. Then I would just use the T-Mobile phone for connecting to my PC for internet access only.

              P.S. T-Mobile offered the PCMCIA card to me for $125.00 (A good price from what I can tell.)

                That's a pretty good price for the card. But don't forget you'll have to pay $100 monthly charge for the data access. Using the phone will only cost you what ever plan you signed up with.

                  $29.95 a month for unlimited access is what I was quoted.

                    If that's for unlimited data on 3G network. Then go for it... I don't see any downside to it.

                        the 30/month is for gprs, not 3g...basically similar to dialup...still worth it when you factor what the competition costs...its 20 if you have a tmobile voice plan

                          That is just for WIFI access, okay if your near one. The card that was referred to above refer to cell phone towers to get internet, slightly different.

                          Also, with the morex case you cannot use the PCI Slot so you have to get either a USB reader as mentioned or get a new/different motherboard, the MII series has CardBus built on.
