slow down when you type.

just check under network adapters in device manager. to get device manager: right click on my computer>properties>hardware>device manager.

if your laptop says "centrino" on it, then it does have wireless

you are forgiven for the typing , i'm just really pedantic because i would hate to see the forum reduced to "plz hlp i skrwd my komputa" if you know what i mean

if you are trying to use a PCMCIA/USB adapter over the internal wireless just locate the internal adapter in device manager, right click and click disable
