Question by Joel: Can i put a wireless card in a small form pc tower?
I have an e-machines el1600-01 (basically a desktop netbook, or a nettop) computer that I want to make wireless. Is it possible to add a wireless card, or what would be the easiest/best way to do it. I have a fair amount of computer hardware experience, so adding a card wouldn’t be a problem, I’m just not sure if the computer can support it.

Best answer:

Answer by Jamfo
Yes… you actually have two options:

1) Purchase an internal PCI wireless card that includes a low profile bracket:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320036

NOTE: This assumes that your chassis requires low-profile add-on cards and that you have an available PCI expansion slot. Otherwise, you could use the same card in the full size expansion slot.

2) Purchase an external USB wireless card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833166056

This is the easiest solution since you don’t even need to open your case to add wireless access. Simply install the drivers and plug in the USB wireless card. This solution may even work out better since you are able to freely position the USB device to maximize signal strength. With an internal card like the one I linked to above, if your tower sits on the floor or in a computer cabinet you may not get good signal as the antenna is on the back of the computer surrounded by the electrical cable and other wires that can cause interferrence.

Either of those solutions are acceptible and will provide wireless access to your desktop-style computer.

Hope that helpss!

    I wouldn’t love my treadmill nearly as much without it; it’s my personal trainer, May 20, 2011

    Update:
    I wanted to update my review now that I’ve been using this for quite some time. I cannot believe I have a full home gym and I have done almost nothing else but use my treadmill since buying this…I have to FORCE myself to do any strength training now and even when I do I only do part of one and then get on the treadmill… I love this thing! I can’t wait to use this each day…if you have a “down” day and then you decide to draw a route on Google maps taking you through a bad part of a New York and then Central Park, it changes perspective! Last night, through Google maps, I ran on the sidewalk beside a homeless woman sitting beside her cart under a blanket, then a woman dressed to the nines walking her poodle, I passed buildings and vans covered in graffiti and then I did a workout through beautiful Central Park and saw gorgeous trees and looked at the stunning sky scrapers…and I felt quite fortunate and realized my worries are nothing and the good scenery lifted me as though I was on vacation. Time FLIES when I workout like that! It’s people watching without ever being seen and without ever leaving your house and you never know what’s around the next corner! I run through tunnels in New York without fear of traffic or worrying about safety or carrying money or getting cold running through mountains in Colorado, and carrying no keys either! I can run through Hawaii and never get hot. I run in Beverly Hills and admire the stunning landscaping and beautiful shops. I run near the Grand Canyon. I LOVE Google maps!! I feel like I take a vacation every single day while working out! When you are on the street, you can choose “street view” and it looks like you are right there on the real street because you are, through Google maps. If you draw a map over a forest, it switches instantly to a bird’s eye view setting when you look down on the land like a treadmill God or something! LOL. Even if I watch TV I keep glancing down to see where I’m running…it feels like being outside somewhere new each day for my run, yet enjoying TV and airconditioning at the same time. If this isn’t a motivator, I don’t know what is. I ran up the mountains yesterday and the treadmill automatically adjusts to the real topography and the incline was SO steep! The roads were marked as “closed during winter” on the mountain I mapped out. It was gorgeous! You can also choose “World Tour” and ifit will map out great routes for you…like Rome, Hawaii, Death Valley, Central Park etc. I’ve worked out on treadmill after treadmill and machine after machine and never before has it been FUN until now. –it’s so addicting no one knows what they are missing til they get it as it’s just not advertised well. I love passing vendors selling wares in Paris, or a speaker in the park in England…I’m just blown away of where I “vacation” each day. I don’t want the workout to stop!

    Original review:
    Look, I was already in love with my treadmill and I thought it was fine on it’s own. I spent days trying to figure out what the heck ifit really was that it mentioned hardly at all in a hard-to-read flyer enclosed with the treadmill as well as on the Amazon website about the machine. The website said vague things such as “You can map out a route anywhere in the country, including a 5k route you plan to be a part of, and run it on your treadmill via Google maps. Imagine the advantage that will give you!” I thought to myself “Absolutely none, viewing a map will do nothing for me. How silly.” But I ignored this pitch and was, instead, a sucker for the workouts I was reading about with Jillian Michaels (no thank you to the workouts with Elizabeth Hasselbeck) on the ifit site so I bought the ifit wifi–a module only compatible with a few manchines, of which my treadmill is one. (ANd this module incidentally is way cheaper on the ProForm site then anywhere else I saw it, including on Amazon (and I do compare everything) I’ll get to more about the workouts in a minute but first let me touch on this part of ifit:

    GOOGLE MAPS:

    What this REALLY does is you can look at a map on street view…the street scene– on your notebook computer or ipad, which sits comfortably in a slot on my machine OR some machines have the screen built in to the machine…the graphics I’m sure are better if you have a machine where you are viewing it straight from the computer though. My ipad works great on my tredmill to view this. The wifi module connects your treadmill or elliptical or whatever to the wireless internet site of ifit. My computer screen showing the info is perfect but it’s not built in to my treadmill. I have the Proform 995) You can have the map zoom in wherever you want on the earth. I first picked Paris. Then I sketched out a route I felt like running with my finger (or mouse). I picked any random street because I don’t actually know Paris streets. Then you upload it with a click to the machine via the wireless…

    This review is from: Proform Ifit Module (Sports)

    I bought this for a Proform treadmill because I thought it would be fun to run through some of the places I’ve lived. While I will admit you can do this, understand that you can only do that ONCE YOU GET IT TO WORK.

    I bought mine in conjunction with a new treadmill. The day after I bought the treadmill I thought I would spend the time and go ahead and hook it up. First of all, there is no instruction booklet but only a single sheet that tells you how go online for the instructions.

    You have to first get the console “activated”. This entails hooking it up to your laptop (or desktop) via USB while it downloads, updates, and checks your wireless connection. This was my first problem. I have had wireless for two years. After it spent about 20 minutes updating, it then said that it was checking my wireless connection. As Murphy’s Law clearly states, the console could not locate my wireless. Even better, it gave about five of the most common reasons this occurs. It went from the simple “check that your router is plugged in”, to the more difficult to understand, which was something like “make sure that your SSID is displaying its code”. I had no idea what this meant or how to check, so I spent about 20 minutes googling this, only to find that it’s in the router installation book, which I hadn’t seen (or used) in about two years. I kept having it re-try to establish a connection, all to no avail.

    Naturally I installed this on a Sunday, so when I called support for help I naturally got a recording that says “please call back Monday-Friday . . .” So I was stuck with a $100 unit that I couldn’t use. Well, on that same support screen I happened to see a “log” tab. Mind you there is NO help on the main page to tell you to check here, only those five “common” reasons that it can’t establish a connection. So I’m about an hour into the install at this point, and when I look on the “log” tab, it says in text that it can’t establish a connection because one type of security is checked (“wsp” I think), but another was found (“wep” or something). So I then spend about 30 minutes trying to understand what this means, and ultimately find that it has to do with encryption on my router. I learn about how wep is suggested to be less secure, so I start trying to switch to WS2. When I switch this on my router (through my computer settings), I no longer have internet service. So, I go back to wep security which re-establishes my internet but still won’t connect to my console.

    So the log says that I have selected WS2, but I never “selected” anything during my install. So I start looking around for some sort of page which has check boxes that maybe I can switch. This takes about 30 minutes as I’m looking both through the router settings and on the iFit program. No luck. Then, I see there is a button to establish your connection manually. I click this on a whim, and sure enough there is a spot to enter my wireless name and pass code, as well as a drop-down box for security type. I type in the name and pass code, select WeP, and . . . no connection. The last thing I can think of (before throwing it against the wall) is to type my router’s name in all caps. And suddenly it says “your console has been configured and is ready to use”. I was so in shock that I just kind of remained calm rather than celebrating. At this point I was about two hours in to the install.

    Ok, after this stage, you are to insert the console into your exercise machine and allow it to update. Here’s the kicker. The instructions state that this process can take two hours. I though surely there must be some sort of status bar to tell you how it’s going. I found an iFit video online, but all that she demonstrates is that you insert the console into your exercise equipment and then leave it for up to two hours. Well, I knew I had a strong internet connection, so I wanted to see how it was doing by monitoring its status. All the instructions said was that if the green light is flashing, it is installing updates. So I googled “status bar during download of ifit updates”. What’s interesting is that the google result suggested I visit the iFit install FAQ’s, complete with half of the answer that I was looking for, such as “to monitor the progress of the installation of updates, look for the”. However when I actually went to the page, there was no question or answer even close to that. So after about 20 minutes I just left it to update. I then kept coming back to check on the update, and would see a solid green light that flashed about 7 times every 15 or so seconds. I took this to mean it was still updating. So I left it. THREE HOURS later I was still coming back in to check, but that same flashing pattern was occurring.

    Finally I gave up and unplugged the unit, then hooked it back up to my computer thinking I was doing something wrong. It immediately brought up the…

    Very cool add-on, but has some quirks, June 16, 2011

    This review is from: Proform Ifit Module (Sports)

    I bought this module to go with my Proform Power 995 Treadmill. It adds tons of functionality to the treadmill, but there are a couple of annoyances. I really LOVE it though.

    Let’s get the annoyances out of the way:

    * Only one profile: It’s a shame that this module only allows one profile. So the rest of my family see’s messages like “Hello Dave” and “Dave’s Treadmill”. That makes them feel like intruders on my treadmill, which isn’t right. It also automatically adds all of their workouts onto my workout history, so I have to manually delete all of their workouts from my profile on their website. I could remove it when I’m not using it, but it’s a lot more convenient (for me) to leave it installed all the time and not have to reacquire the network signal every time I use it.

    * Network Setup: The network setup was pretty simple, but there’s something funky about the way it integrates with my home network. Once or twice a week we’ll get error messages from our home router saying that we just installed a second gateway called “iFit” and that we should only have one gateway on our network. I haven’t had a chance to personally troubleshoot this, because my kids are usually the ones to see the message and they just click OK. It’s not that big of a deal, but it’s an annoyance.

    * Jillian Michaels: OK, this is the only thing that really really bugs me about this item. The iFit service comes with pre-configured workouts from Jillian Michaels. That part is really cool and she did a great job putting together some good workouts. But she’s too much of a good thing. When you first start, a recording of her voice comes on and gives you a few words of encouragement. So far, so good. But then once every minute a recorded message plays a few more encouraging words. That might seem cool, but it really isn’t. It’s too much Jillian. Plus the audio clips are strange. There are different sized clips (5 seconds and 10 seconds). So even if she just says “Keep going!”, the message plays static for the rest of the five seconds: “Keep going!…(2)…bzz…(3)…bzz…(4)…bzz…(5)”. You can’t imagine how annoying that is if you’re listening to a book on tape or a podcast on your MP3 player through the integrated audio jack. It’s like they never tested two really big features of the treadmill working at the same time. Yes, I want to listen to my own audio and yes I want to use one of Jillian Michaels’ workouts. So I end up watching the clock all the way through my workout and pausing my audio every minute and waiting for Jillian to tell me to Keep It Up.

    Whew. I got that out of the way.

    Don’t be fooled into thinking that this thing isn’t amazingly cool though, especially if you have an iPhone. You can load their free iPhone app and then watch Google Street View pictures of the Google Maps route that you create on the iFit website. I’m really dazzled at how well they integrated all that functionality together. I can’t tell you how cool it is to watch the scenery as I run across the Golden Gate Bridge or do laps around the lake at Epcot Center. The course that you create on their website is downloaded to the iFit module and then the hill profile controls the incline of the treadmill. It’s an amazing effect.

    I bought my iFit module from the manufacturer for about $50. It comes with a year of service on their website. I wouldn’t dream of investing so much in their treadmill without spending another $50 to add this functionality. It’s that cool.
