my mum has this laptop. its pretty old, i just wana know if it has the capibility to connect to my houses wireless connection, if so how do i do it, when i click on the little thingy in the bottom right it only gives me an option to connect by dial up.

You would need to buy a mini pci wireless card.

Wireless communication Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN upgradeable with optional mini PCI card

Wired communication topology : international V.90 modem, V.92 ready
speed : 56 Kbps data (V.90) and 14.4 Kbps fax
topology : Ethernet LAN
speed : 10/100 Base-TX

You could hard wire it as of now.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

There you ask if it is. There IS a topic about it already. Do NOT create another one.

It is a PC Card and it should work just fine. It support Vista so it should have driver for XP as well.
