What is Wireless Internet Card ?

Wireless Internet Cards are peripheral devices that allow us to connect our laptop computer to Internet. They come in various forms such as

Today, Most of the PDAs and Laptops come with built-in internet cards (Including My too). This cards simplifies our life of accessing the internet without being restricted to single spot but works only in area (region) where wifi network is available such as near coffee shops, airports, railway stations, institute campuses, company offices etc. These cards automatically detect new networks when we enter into any such zone (hotspot). Currently, Maximum Range of wifi networks vary from 20 meters to 1.6 Kms (As per my own research). Soon, you may even be able to surf the net while flying at 30,000 feet (9,144 meters). Internet cards uses radio wave frequencies (above 2.4 GHz) to transmit data.
