I have a gateway laptop that I bought approx. 3 years ago. I've had aol dial up on the laptop since I purchased it, but now I am off to college and in need of the wireless internet. Please tell me what items I will need in-order to connect wirelessly.
I assume your are using Windows XP with SP2 installed. If you are you will need to add a WiFi adaptor. This can be a USB dongle or a PC Card (PCMCIA). Both should work with your college connection. Lots available. Take your pick. An example is click here
It may also be possible to fit a mini-pci card to your laptop but that's a little more complicated and a PC Card solution might be easiest.
When you look closer you will see that WiFi has various speeds available. Pick a 54 Mb/sec as it's probably the most universal. It's called 802.11g.
I want to setup the wireless connection on my wireless enabled laptop. Also, i want my subscription to be with aol, do i download aol dsl or broadband? I already have a wireless router what else do i need.
