Wi-Fi-enabled tower?

On my W7 tower, I've been seeing a WI FI icon
but assumed it just meant I could use a usb wi fi device on it which I have done. Well, today curiosity got the best of me & I pulled the DSL out of the back & it totally amazed me to know I was still online, no usb.
How long have towers been like laptops, come wi fi enabled?

A couple things:
Firstly, you already seem to have a wireless card.
Second, why are you asking are you having problems with your keyboard and mouse?
Third, no.

No problems, I've just never seen an illuminated wifi icon on any tower till this one.
It simply got me curious which is why I pulled the DSL cable out & was still online. It has a usb wifi thing for the mouse/keyboard.
Thank you.:)

Motherboards can have wifi built in to them, or you can have a wifi card as previously mentioned. I've seen a fair few retail boxes come with built-in wifi lately.
