A bit of info. It may also be needed for things like a wireless printer or storage, not just to connect to the internet. I'd leave it alone, it shouldn't hurt anything.
Thanks for the links Wizard but the problem with this item does not help, Since microsoft pushed it through my wifi range has been limited and the time it takes to print something to the wireless printer now takes 3 to 4 minutes. It used to take 20 seconds or so.
this is why I am trying to get rid of it.
