I needed a cheap laptop for work and I bought an Alienware M3200 from my brother (wasnt cheap but he needed the money). He bought this computer 5 months ago and it sat not used for 3 of those 5 months. I dont have a slot for an LAN adapter. It has slots for usb ports and express card and SD card but none for an adapter. I read the manuel and under it is a compartment for an LAN module. Anyone ever heard of this? What is a LAN module anyhow, and how does it differ from Cardbus adapter. I am new to the laptop world and have a Belkin USB deal to get a wireless signal but it is a little too obtrusive. Just trying to learn about it, I wont be on the internet often with it but it would be nice to be able to do it without having to have something sticking 3 inches out the side. Thanks.
