Network cable (RJ45)
A network cable (also called RJ45 cable) is used to connect the host
computer to the access point (see illustration below); this type of cable
may also be used to connect peripheral devices to the access point.
An internal wireless adapter is normally already installed in your
computer. A button or controls in Windows allow you to activate
or deactivate the adapter.

Turning on/off a wireless network connection
Most computers feature a 'Wi-Fi' button that turns the network
connection on or off. If your computer has wireless access, but does
not feature a Communication button, you may turn your wireless
network on or off, or control what is shared over the network with the
network management options. Press the Windows key ( ) + W, type
"HomeGroup" and then click on HomeGroup.
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.
