Hi George,

Thanks for the information, My son says it is possible that Santa may stop off 
at pc world and pick up a wireless router for the laptop! (ho ho ho!) I think I 
get most of what you said, but if you did take the laptop e.g. abroad I assume 
you would have to subscribe to another network to access the wireless access 
point? if so? who provides such a service?Sorry for all the questions George 
but I guess I'm just curious. Once again thanks.

  Hi Alistair,

  I see your first questions has been answered, but no comment on the second.

  Centrino is a type of processor which has been developed specifically fore 
wireless networking.

  If your new laptop is wireless ready, that's a potential bonus for you.  Put 
very simply, it gives you the potential to hook up to the internet, and send 
and receive mail, without actually been connected with wires.  This could be in 
your own home, or virtually anywhere in the world which provides wireless 

  The net result is that you could simply pick up your laptop and work anywhere 
in the house, or even outside, that suited you.  No dragging cables about.

  Of course for home use, you would need a wireless modem, router or access 
point, but these days prices have fallen considerably.

  I'll spare the connectivity details, but suffice to say with Windows XP, 
especially SP2, things have become much easier to set up, and once you have 
tasted wireless with a laptop, you won't want to go back to hard wire - unless 
you have really huge amounts of data to shift about at extremely high speed.

    Hi folks,

    Following the demise of my desktop pc I have been presented with a new 
laptop for Christmas, problem is for the life of me I can't find the keystroke 
for the jaws curser!It's driving me nuts! I'm using jfw 4.5.1 with xp home. Any 
help would be appreciated. Apparently this machine has something called 
centrino technology, and is wireless ready, sadly this is just double dutch to 
me, anyone who could explain these terms to me would help me enormously.
