How can you tell if your PC is set up to pick up wireless?

If it is, it will have a Wireless Network Adapter installed.

Go into the Network Connections folder ("Start > Run", type NCPA.CPL and click OK) and look for an entry for a "Wireless Network Connection".

There will also be an entry in the Network Adapters section of Device Manager ("Start > Run", type DEVMGMT.MSC and click OK).

The only thing I've found is this: Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection

Is this irrelevant?

That's a "wired" ethernet connection, which should appear in the Network Connections folder as a "Local Area Connection".

A "wireless" adapter will literally be called a "Wireless Network Connection".
