  4. My computer is not detecting my wireless adapter/network card

    Which network adapter?

    My friend recently came over to my house with his laptop. Before I could connect him to my lan he detected several wireless networks in the area. I want to connect to these wireless networks, but I don't know what kind of adapter I need. I searched his laptop model and this is his network adapter http://www.intel.com/network/connectivity/products/wireless/wireless_n/overview.htm

    It seems he could get both N, and G signals

    what would any of you guys suggest?
