John, i do thank you for all your help. greatly appreciated.

before i digging any further into things here, i believe i will log onto
linuxwireless.org to see what i can find in way of drivers for card.

as for scanning for wifi in area, i believe 'war drive' progs will be
best bet.

intent is not for hacking, i want to increase protection for when i
start using wifi with laptop, which is going to be some more digging
because centos does not see wifi chip.

all in all, i am going to have to educate myself on workings of wifi.

thanks again.
