showing my ignorance. is there such a thing? if so tell me about it. not interested in satellite internet. too many bad stories on here. fixing to go to work, will be checking back tomorrow.
The only diff between a laptop and desktop when it comes to wireless internet is the laptop have the wireless card installed already. As said before you can get a wireless card for your desktop but it will get you nothing unless you have something close by like a wireless router or a cell phone "hot spot" that puts out the signal. In order to use wireless on a desktop you will need to have internet either from the landline phone/cable/dish or cell company.i have dsl now but may be moving kind of rural in the near future and will probably not have a landline and i dont really want to have to buy a laptop.
