    Is Dell Wireless Driver install needed


    Noticed in control panel that Dell wireless driver progam is installed on my Dell 660. I use wired connections for the pc to my modem and don't know if it is necessary as I do not have any wireless items connected. A wifi finder program shows three items being on when I only have two up, so I wonder if this is the third. Did not want to uninstall till I checked it out.

    If you don't need wireless access, I'd leave the driver installed (so there should if ever needed/handy to have) but disable the wifi device in Device Manager
