An internal wireless card lets you access the Internet and a home or corporate computer network without the hassle of using an Ethernet or other type of network connection.
The wireless card grabs the communication signal flowing throughout the air and processes the signal through your Gateway PC's Windows operating system so you can access websites, email and related Internet-based services.
But like other devices in your computer, you must turn on the internal wireless card in your Gateway PC before using it.
Turn on your computer, if it is off.
Press and hold the "Fn" key on your computer's keyboard.
Press the "F2" key in the upper row of keys on your keyboard.
The wireless Internet card's connection utility will start searching for a wireless signal.
