Your ISP may be able to provide you with what's called router. This will enable you to connect the pc via ethernet cable or wireless. If your pc or lap top is a good distance from the router, then you could use an adapter to put your internet connection via your mains electricity, then what you do is to have another adapter to get the internet from the mains to your pc/lap top.

This is also prolly safer than wireless, but wireless is getting more secure & safer nowerdays.
