I'm just trying to determine if my computer had wireless connection ability

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your machine, and what operating system are you running?

It's an e machine Et1831-03. I'm running windows 7

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

It seems like I need an adapter. I got a message about a broad band connection and a cable for a connection

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I've been looking in the set up area to determine if a connection can be established or if I need a mm adapter of some sort.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

That's it

Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Your machine comes with an ethernet adapter for connecting a cable to a router or switch and

getting an internet connection that way. You can make the machine Wi-Fi capable using a

USB Wi-Fi adapter like the one in my link here: http://tinyurl.com/EEEkit

This adapter is compatible with the latest wireless technologies and is Windows 7 compatible.
