Introdução

The wireless or "WIFI" card receives signals from a wireless router or other wireless device and translates the signal so that the computer user can access the Internet any time they are in range of a Wi-Fi hotspot or wireless network. WIFI cards are "plug and play" components which means that they can be removed and replaced easily. The tricky part is getting to them inside the computer. The replacement WIFI card should be left in the package until it is ready to be installed as any foreign material that gets on or in the WIFI card may affect the performance of the component. If you are unable to connect to the internet unless your computer is physically connected to the router then replacing your WIFI card as described in this guide should fix this issue.
