    There are wireless LAN cards available for the laptop. These are of two types. The first one (of the older technology) is a PCMCIA wireless LAN card. It hooks the PCMCIA slot on the side of the laptop. It looks like the following:

    The other one is a USB card and looks like any USB dongle. Search on eBay for offers.
