Why should office computers have all the pleasure? Notebook network adapters allow you to add your laptop to your home network.
Most laptops have USB ports, so if this is the method you want to use to connect your laptop to your network, follow the instructions in the previous section to attach the USB network adapter. You can also buy flash programmers for ARM MCUs from various online sources.
If your laptop does not have USB ports or you already use USB ports for other things, you can use a PC network adapter, which is sometimes called a PCMCIA network adapter. (PCMCIA is an international personal memory card association.)
The PC card has once the size of a credit card. One end of the card is the outer side. This site has a device that provides a connection for the network, in the form of an RJ-45 connector for the Ethernet cable.
The other end of the card, the internal side, has a row of tiny holes. By a wealthy coincidence, the back of the PC card slot in the laptop has 68 small pins.
An arrow on the map indicates which way to plug it into the pc slot so that the holes encounter the pins inside the slot.
Press the card firmly in the slot. When the card is fully engaged, a small button next to the slot appears – you press the key when you want to eject the card (in the same way as a floppy disk drive).
Your laptop probably has two PC card slots, one on the other. The slots are usually on the computer side, hidden behind a rocking cover that protects both locations.
Unless the documentation of your laptop has instructions on the contrary, regardless of the niche you use for your adapter.
