I've just been happily playing around with my Maplin's USB DAB receiver, soldering on (hehe) a new aerial which works a treat. This was all on my normal PC.
Plugged it into my carpc's laptop to discover/notice that the receiver is USB2 only. THe laptop has no USB 2!
My lappy is a Tulip Topline 300, no PCMCIA, no cardBUS, no USB2. Only thing it does have is a firewire, which apparently won't help.
Apparently it does have a 'MINI-PCI' interface, which is for the 'integrated wireless lan module (optional)'. Any good you think?
SO, do I have any options with this DAB receiver, short of scrapping it and getting a new laptop?
Thanks for help in advance!
wifi... how does tHIS card work out? I mean, connect or solder headers to it? seems to be a tight space for headers connectors. hmm... are those four large copper landing panels for soldering?
I'd love to see a larger /clearpic of this card if anyone has it.
Arn't the black headers at the top of the card similar if not the same to motherboard USB headers??
get a pcmcia usb 2.0 card.
