I took this netbook to China a while ago, and stayed in my mom's
house. She had internet service for her desktop. but my netbook could
not get internet connection. I was told by the local people that I had
to buy a device looking like a USB. When inserting it to the
computer, it would be able to get wireless service nearby.
I didn't buy it in China as I would come back to the U.S. soon. I
wonder whether or not such device is available in the U.S. If yes,
what is the name? I like to buy one as I will go back to China soon.

Re: Hardware for wireless connection
From your rather vague description the USB device could be a WiFi to

your netbook has built in or it could be a USB to Cellular modem.
Either way I would wait until you go back to China and purchase the
device there to be sure it will be compatible with the systems in the
area near your mother.
