Does Windows Vista Home have wireless networking ?

Hi Everyone,

My neighbour who's a pensioner has just received a pc form the local council free of charge. Its a HP G3001.UK. There is a wireles router in the house but i don't know whether Vista Home comes with wirless built in or would they have to buy some kind of wireless adapter. As far as i can make out there is just one network card installed a realtek and this is not wireless.

Hi rossgolf.

Thanks for the reply,

OK so this means a wireless adapter of some sort is needed ie usb before the pc wil pick up the wireless router?
