i am going onto broad band with the bt voyager router. this is wireless.

How do i know if my computers have wireless cards (can go wireless).

If they havent can this be overcome via a usb plub in thingy that they sell on the bt website?

Sorry about my non it language!

Don't buy a USB adapter unless you absolutely have to. They are such a pain that they are a last resort only.

For Desktops, buy a PCI card.

For old laptops that are too long in the tooth to be wifi-enabled already, buy a PCMCIA card. Note that these are also known as PC cards. Some people refer to them as PCMIA (without the C) but this is incorrect and could be misleading.
