Hi - I have a Toshiba TE2000 laptop which (according to the specs) has an integrated wifi antenna. There is a wireless on/off switch on the side of the machine but I can see no reference in the hardware device manager to anything resembling wireless hardware.

Question - do I need to buy anything else in order to connect to a wireless network, like a pcmcia card or something, or are the integrated components all I need??

Thanks in advance.

you will need a wireless network to connect to... so if your at home then you will need a router that is capable of broadcasting either an 802.11b or 802.11g connection... otherwise there is no wireless lan for you to connect to in the first place...

Charlie, when you open My Network Place properties (right-click it), can you see some network adapters? One of then should be the wireless adapter. You can try downloading Netstumbler to see if it's working.
