Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Wireless internet i have wirelss in my laptop and don't know how to use it i have 802.11a/b/g+BT how would i get wifi


Answers :

As long as it is on it will automatically pick up any signals close. You must be in range of any Wi Fi signal. You can pick up signals in places like airports or internet cafes as such. These are unsecure free ways to get internet service. If you have a desktop connected to a router with an access point you could pick up service from it within your home. You can secure these safely.Hope this clarifies things for you. Most laptops have a switch somewhere to turn the wireless on and off.
