You do not want to be in the Local Area Connection (LAN) settings. Once you go through Start > Control Panel > Network Connections you should see a wireless adapter of some sort next to your listing for Local Area Connections. If not then you do not have a WiFi card installed or it is faulty. Even if it were "disabled" it would appear in that list.

How many connections are in the Network Connections list?

You can also right click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager Button and scroll down the list to "Network Adapters"

All of your network adapter hardware will be listed here. You should have at least one Ethernet NIC adapter listed. If you do not se a Wireless (WiFi) adapter listed here than you do not have a wireless-ready laptop.

You will need to pick up a WiFi PC Card, preferably 802.11 b/g. You must also have access to a wireless access point (either at home, office or Starbucks).

Take a look in the Device Manager and post what you find.

dbaseek,

It looks like you still have a question.  Why did you close this (http:Q_22078803.html) and post a new one?  I assumed this was taken care of when you closed the question and we can reopen it and delete this if you still have a problem.  Let me know what you want to do?

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

dbaseek,

Did you mean to accept my comment as the answer?  It seems like that may be a mistake.  Please let us know.  If you accepted my comment because information in the original question was what you used then this question should be deleted.

Hey.. am I missing something here?

Seem my answer was spot right on for this question, as the other question had more to do with a log-on.

dbaseek plainly does not have a wireless adapter installed on his laptop. That is what my post was all about. Could a moderator please take a look at this question and posts?
