An internal wireless adapter is normally already installed in your computer. A button or controls in Windows
allow you to activate or disactivate the adapter.

Ad-Hoc internet sharing
The Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) feature of Microsoft Windows allows you to share a
single Internet connection with multiple computers. Built-in support for IEEE 802.11
wireless LANs (WLANs) allows you to create an ad-hoc wireless network. These two
features can be used together to share a wired Internet connection with the members of
an ad-hoc wireless network. This is the method of connection if you do not possess an
Access Point (router).
Turning On/Off a WiFi Network Connection
Most computers feature a 'WiFi' button that turns the network connection on or off. If
your computer does not feature a 'WiFi' button, you may turn your wireless network on
or off, or control what is shared over the network with the network management
options. Click on Start
Warning: Using wireless devices while flying in aircraft is prohibited. Switch off all devices before
boarding an aircraft; they may be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt
communications, and even be illegal.
