    Exactly how will you add wifi to the machine, physically?

    you can buy a USB wireless adapter that you plug into the USB port and it should be working as a wireless card . at least that is what the sales person told me but I never seen it before so I don't know if it works.

    Yes, that is true. I didn't want to assume USB or PCI or PCIe or PCMCIA. If you pick the USB adapter well, it will be plug-n-play. Automatic. If you pick poorly, it may never work. Look at the specific wifi chip uses.

    thanks. I will have to do some research on it before I buy it then.
