Laptops have made the computer a more versatile tool. With the right wireless hardware, you can now surf the Web just about anywhere you can catch a wave, so to speak. Whether you happen to be at your breakfast table, on your backyard deck, in the library of your university, or at your local Starbucks, Port City Java, or Dunkin' Donuts, you can now go online without having to physically hook up your computer to anything. Fortunately, the process of setting up wireless networking in Ubuntu is quite easy—little different than what you just read in "Setting Up a High-Speed Connection" on Setting Up a High-Speed Connection. In fact, as I just mentioned, chances are that everything will just work from the get-go.
