What You Need To Set Up a Wireless Network

If you want to install a wireless network in your home or office, you need wireless network cards and a Wireless Access Point Router. This section covers these components.

Wireless Network Cards

To enable your computer(s) to connect to the wireless network, you need to install a wireless network card on each of the computers you want to be able to access the network. If you purchased a new laptop, it may already include a wireless network card. Many new systems do. If not, you can purchase and install a card. For laptop computers, you can add a card (called a PCMCIA card) that you slide into a PCMCIA port, or you can purchase a card that plugs into your computer via a USB port. For desktop computers, you can install a card into a slot inside your system unit or, again, add an external card that plugs into your computer through a USB port.
