yes you can take it out. keep it though just incase you need it in the future for a network or something.

that one was used for networking, if you got two pc's in your house you could network them so you could browse the other pc's without going to the other.or you could play lan games like counter strike, battle realms,etc.if you got time try vising this one.SHAME ON YOU FOR THIS TYPE OF SPAMMING

you will be banned on the next offense this is number 2 post
