Been having trouble with WiFi cutting off several times a day getting worse latley dropping Evey few minutes.

Decided to have a look inside discovered my WiFi card has totally gone wires almost off.

So I need a replacement but could someone tell me if you can use a usb WiFi adapter instead of a internal WiFi card as I can't afford the repair at the moment.

thanks for any help

Forgot to ask will a usb WiFi adapter work without the WiFi card in as I removed it as the wires came out and wouldn't go back in ports to damaged


Thanks
 
If you get an external USB WiFi then it should work just fine.

I can't say on if it will work fine, or if the computer itself will work fine, with the internal removed. While it shouldn't effect the external USB one, it could effect the computer itself. Some computers are quite moody if you do things like remove parts. The only way to tell for sure is to try. If needed, you can always reinstall it (until you can afford a new internal) and just use the external.

In the end, you can always use the external and never get a new internal. That part is up to you.
