Yes.  You can use Xtra-PC without a wireless connection for applications such as watching DVDs, playing music CDs and MP3s, viewing photos, using OpenOffice, and more.  However, if you want to access the internet using your laptop, you can use a wired network connection if it’s available.  Or you can buy a USB wireless adapter for as little as $10 that simply plugs into the USB port on your laptop. An example of a wireless USB we have tested using Xtra-PC is Panda Wireless PAU03.
