Closed Can i add wifi adapter to my laptop if internal is bad Tags: Connectivity Laptops Wifi Wireless Networking Last response: December 3, 2011 6:41 PM in Wireless Networking Share pete4390 November 26, 2011 10:09:55 AM The wifi card in my laptop may be bad. I can find a network but cannot connect. It says that signal lost, but source is in same room and works with other laptops. Can I just add a external USB WiFi adapter to bypass my internal one?
