Hi! My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you this evening.

The Acer Aspire m3470g does not have integrated WiFi hardware, but you could easily add the capability by purchasing a WiFi dongle that will plug into any available USB port on the computer. Here is a link to a very basic such dongle that would do the job:

Once you've gotten that installed -- which really is as easy as plugging it in and running the included CD -- your computer will work with your new wireless network with aplomb.

I hope that helps answer your question! Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

How do I rate an answer?
You can give your rating by selecting one of the five faces located under each answer. Giving a positive rating compensates me for my time with you. If the value of your question is more than the value of your deposit, then your deposit will be applied toward the balance due and the remainder will be debited from your previously specified payment method. Please remember that I will not be paid until you leave a positive rating for my answer.
