Intel Centrino & Wireless

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by What's In A Name?, Oct 4, 2003.

  1. Hi

    I know that notebooks with the Intel Centrino processor comes wireless
    ready, all you need is a router and your ready to go wireless. My question
    is, is the 802.11b wireless feature integrated ON the actual Centrino
    processor chip or is it a card that is installed somewhere else internally
    in the notebook? My guess would be on the chip, since all notebooks that
    have this processor are already wireless ready but I just thought I would
    ask to clear up some confusion.

    Thanks.

    It is a separate card, not on the processor.
    Centrino is not much more than a marketing ploy which means processor
    plus built-in wireless card.
