Is my laptop’s wireless connection dead? What can I do?

If your laptop’s internal wireless connection just died, what can you do?  Can your friends or officemates get on your wireless router, but you cannot?  You have a few options that will get you back on the Internet wirelessly.  

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Replace the internal wireless connection.  You’ll probably need a computer repair technician for this job.
  2. Insert one of those Linksys wireless adapters into your available laptop slots.  These are the cards that sticks out from the side of your system.
  3. Insert a USB wireless adapter.  These are not as stable, but the easiest to set up.

If you don’t feel like fixing your wireless issue, then you’ll be grounded with just using a physical, wired cable for your Internet use.
