If you have a computer that has slower or older type of wireless networking connectivity that won’t hit the super fast speeds wireless gear is capable of today you can change the card out if possible. For most folks changing out hardware won’t be a good choice and these uses will need some sort of USB network adapter that supports the faster tech.
