Confirm this laptop does (or doesn't) have an internal wireless card

Hi Experts.  I need a neutral expert's opinion on this.  We have a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop running Windows XP Pro w/sp2.  The confusion is whether or not this laptop has a wireless adapter.  I ran the Belarc tool and no wireless adapter was found.  I checked with Dell's website using the service tag and couldn't make sense of the "system config".

https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?~ck=ln&~tab=2&c=us&l=en&lnki=0&s=gen

I also checked under Device Manager and the only network adapter listed was the integrated wired card.  Could somone confirm whether this laptop has a wireless adapter or not?  

Thank you.

invalid:  However this should answer your question:

One disappointment is that you can't include integrated internal Wi-Fi in the Inspiron 1100.  You can select an option to include a Dell True Mobile Wi-Fi card but that's simply a card that will slot into your machines Type II PCMCIA slot and is not hidden away inside.  Most other Inspiron machines offer internal Wi-Fi.

The link is not beneficial without the service tag

SOB!

Thanks for the confirmation.  I felt pretty confident but started second guessing myself when another tech here told everyone it did.  This will feel good.  

I will award points right after this meeting.  Thanks for your help!
