You purchase a new desktop computer that does not have wireless capability, and then you decide that you want to use a wireless connection to the Internet. What are the least expensive ways (choose two) to upgrade your system to wireless?

a. Trade in the computer for another computer that has wireless installed.

b. Purchase a second computer that has wireless capability.

c. Purchase a wireless expansion card and install it in your system.

d. Purchase a USB wireless adapter and connect it to the computer by way of a USB port.

Program Explanation

Given:

A desktop computer which lacks the wireless capability.

To find: The least expensive ways to upgrade the system with the wireless capabilities.

Solution:

Following are the two least expensive ways:

Install the wireless expansion card in the system.

Connect a USB wireless adapter through a USB port.

Both the above options are cheaper than buying a new desktop or trading the computer with another person, as extra money might be required to compensate for a wireless system, and not to mention the hassle of trading.

Hence, the options C and D are the least expensive ways to upgrade the system with the wireless capabilities.
