Cable modem and laptop

  Mutant_Llama 17:28 08 May 2004

I currently have a desktop PC using 2MB cable modem situated in a computer room upstairs.

I would like to get a cheap laptop to use downstairs on the same 2mb cable modem connection (preferably wireless).

Any ideas on whether or not this is an easy thing to do, and if so what would I need?

Wireless router - this is wired to your cable modem and the desktop PC.

Wireless adaptor plugs into PCMCIA slot on laptop.
