What is Needed to Make Laptop Wireless?

If the laptop does not come with a built in wireless card, there are two routes you may take. The first is to purchase a wireless PCMCIA card which resembles a credit card. Insert the card into the slot on the side of the computer to connect to the network or internet. The second option is to buy a wireless usb adapter. Insert the usb adapter into a usb slot and you are connected.
