    Looks like your right that it doesn't come with wireless or a PCMCIA slot HOWEVER it does have 4 USB ports.

    Therefore a

    Belkin 54Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Network Adapter (F5D7050UK) (NW-009-BE)

    Should do just fine, it's plugs straight in and is quite compact - ideal for your problem.
