I'm a student at a college that has a high speed ethernet system and i need to find a card to be able to access it. the only slot i can use is my modem slot, which is the size of a PCI slot but is placed too close to the back of the computer... I have a Compaq Presario 2200, hey it was free..., so i don't know what kind of port that is... any help will be appreciated.

Could be an AMR slot, which is small, and usually brown I beleive. IF thats the case, its modem slot only.

I think thats what you have, if so, bad news, something has got to go.

If you have a USB port, you can get an ethernet adapter for that. They work just fine.

there is a page from o'rielly about using wireless lan cards. now this is sort of out of date, but you will get an idea about what you need. as far as the cards or kits. you can shop around for those. linksys has a kit for wireless cards, as do other manufacturers, i'd just ask the sales person. give him/her an idea of what you want to do and the distance, and let them help. be sure to try to find a rep that knows what they're doing. usually, there's at least 1 or 2 sales guys in stores like best buy, that have it together enough to give you the low down on this.
