CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN WIFI TO ME?
I KNOW IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH WIRELESS INTERNET BUT CAN ANY PC USE WIFI OR DO YOU HAVE TO GET A WIFI CARD OR SOMETHING?

mostly all new laptops these days come with Wireless Fidelity built in, 802.11b/g. Desktops you have to buy a network card to have wireless in it.

Below I have gave you two more links to extra information on Wi-fi and all about it. Above was just a brief definition on what type of computers have it.

No need to use capitals - it's regarded as SHOUTING...:-)

See:

and use the links from the ADSL tab in the left hand menu.

hELLO
rEGARDING cAPITALS iT IS THE the thing that has anoid me most since having a PC.
I type without looking up only to eventually find that I HAVE PRESSED the caps lock button.
How I wish a bell would ring when i Am using capitals
Sorry nothing to do with 'WIFI? ASK A SILLY QUESTION
How I wish I had been taught touch typing!

gel,

Look under Accessibility Options' in Control panel. Activate Toggle keys, this will sound a beep when the Caps lock is pressed.
