Internal Wireless Card Death!

The one thing that makes a laptop totally worthless is not having a functional internal wireless card!  It's practically a desktop computer at that point.  I don't know what happened tonight, but my wireless connection disappeared.  I have a little switch so that I can turn my wireless on and off manually, so I checked to see if I had accidentally turned it off.  I kept switching it on and off hoping it would remember to come back to life, but to no avail.  Luckily my wireless router came with an ethernet cable, so I was able to access the internet.  But what am I going to do at work tomorrow???  I suppose the first thing I have to do is visit BestBuy and plunk down $50 to get a wireless USB adapter.  I haven't used on of those for 5 years.  Oddly enough the previous one I had used 5 years ago was happily attached to the Tivo, but that died recently too, so I will have to buy two of them.

Just when I thought I didn't need to spend more money.
