My work laptop is wireless-ready, but the wireless module wasn’t installed at the time it was ordered. These modules cost a fortune, so work are not prepared to purchase one. I put in a quote request for a PCMCIA wireless card, and was told it was going to be about £55+VAT - I could by one for a tenner, but I’m not permitted to install the software. Don’t get me wrong, I physically can install the software, but I’d be severely rollocked for doing so.
So, what I’m looking for is this...
A wireless LAN adapter, which you connect to your laptop via an ethernet cable, which is powered via USB. Kind of like the ASUS WL-330gE, but I cannot find anywhere in the UK that stocks it.
Any suggestions - either of alternative devices, or of places where I could get the WL-330gE - would be very much welcomed.
