How to check your computer is wireless-enabled or not

check your computer is wireless-enabled or not
Wireless connection allows you to connect your desktop and laptop computers to a wireless network for browsing the internet or sharing files or folders from any part of your home or office. Before connecting to a wireless network, you'll first need to make sure that your computer is wireless-enabled. If you're using Microsoft Windows, you can determine your computer’s wireless abilities using the below easy-to-follow steps.

Step1: Click on the Start button.

Step2: Right-click on "My Computer" and the select "Properties."

Step3: In Properties Window, Click on the "Hardware" tab.

Step4: Click on the Device Manager button (Windows XP) and check the installed hardware until you see Network Adapters. Make sure that you are logged on with admin privileges to access Device Manager.
For Windows 7 or Vista, click the Start button and type ‘devmgmt.msc’ in the Start Search box. Hit the Enter key. If prompted, enter your admin password and click Continue.

Step5: Click the "+" symbol next to Network Adapters to expand the section.

Step6: Find a hardware device that is named as "wireless" or "802.11" (for example, Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter). If you see such a device listed under Network Adapters, it means your computer is wireless-enabled. If you don't see a similar device name, your computer may not have wireless capabilities.

Note: If your computer doesn't have built in wireless capabilities, you will need to install a wireless adapter.
