mixed wireless-wired SOHO network

I have a small network using an HP Pavilion dv5220 as the primary account. I now have it working correctly as a wired Ethernet connection.

Can I also configure it as a wireless connection at the same time? How do I do this so occasionally I can use it in another location?

TIA,
Lew

Hi:

When you're in the wireless location, simply activate the wireless 'radio' and connect to the Access Point (SSID).

Make a great day!

Re: mixed wireless-wired SOHO network

May I add to my problem description, please.
My laptop has ethernet, firewire, and wireless connection possibilities.
I have it configured for ethernet now.

I want this one laptop to also be configured for wireless.

My thanks for a prompt reply, but ....

I know wireless is rf communication but what is the "radio" you mentioned?

I need some step by step directions more than a verbal description.

Again, thanks but I still need assistance.
