My friend is going to by a "Elonex one plus" laptop and wants to know can he access broadband internet in his room in his family home, ideally without his ex-wife knowing(who lives there too)Now he knows that the family's main desktop pc has AOL broadband and he knows it is via the telephone line)not wireless) but what I want to know is if it is with AOL does this mean that his family use a normal/non-wireless router? And if so is his best option to connect to the internet router via an ethernet cable or buy a wireless router? My friend isn't computer literate. PS
Any views on the Elonex one plus?(as I dont like the look of it being as it was only 3100 and I believe only has a 0.3 mhz procesor
Look forward to any replies
