User Accounts and Limiting Wireless Access

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Rmx5bm5vcGw=?=, Mar 6, 2007.

  1. I'm giving my 5-year old laptop to my 13-year old son for school note taking
    (he is currently using an alph-smart keyboard machine). The laptop has XP
    Home. I have set up a user account for him but I can't figure out how to
    disable the wireless capability. Any help would be most appreciated.

  2. Hi
    Laptop is a generic word there is hundreds of models out there.
    What kind of Wireless hardware is in the Laptop?
    Pre-installed? Look at the Laptop's manual.
    Add-On card? Take the card out.

    Have you looked in the BIOS?
