for example you have a neighbour who is just 10 feet away from your place and they are using a wifi router and its an open connection

JACUSTOMER-bbldc894- :

HOW DO YOU BE WIRELESS?

then your laptop will detect the signal and whne you try to connect it will connect if the router doesnt have a secure connection.

you need an internet service providers line

they will provide you a wifi router if you want

compaq has a wireless on off switch on the laptop itself.
