Re: WLAN netcard price

Cheng:

Wireless PC Card (PCMCIA) Network Interface Cards (NICs) can cost anywhere for $10US to over $100US, depending on speed/technology required. Make sure you get something that will work with the Wireless Access Points (WAP) that you'll use.

A MAC address is a unique address that is embedded in every NIC and cannot be changed. MAC stands for Media Access Control.

Yes! I saw the MAC address is printede on the card.

So when my notebook move to another city, or another country, I just wonder how can I access to new internet service?

Thanks!

The new Internet Service Provider (ISP) should be able to tell you how to connect.

Re: WLAN netcard price

please note that it's possible to change the mac adress.
i don't know if you are able to change it on every network adapter but i'm sure that you can change it on routers.
