I'm looking to purchase my first laptop. I'm confused on what equipment and services I need to connect to the internet outside of home.
I was told I would need to purchase a network adapter and get a monthly subscription with a company like at Verizon to have internet connectivity outside of home.
In my research I found that most laptops come with a network card. Is the network adapter a different device all together?
Do I need the network adapter in places that have WiFi?
