HI everyone. I have a freebie desktop from my work as they were upgrading. However, it does not have a wireless connection to pick up the internet. Its a war horse of a tower and was fine when we had the BT hub actually running from it - if you follow. However we have moved now and the pc is in another room and we now have virgin media broadband and the pc will not fit in the room where it can be directly connected. SO what do i need to buy for the PC to be able to pick up the internet. It runs windows XP.

ALSO - sorry to be greedy with my questions, but i put comodo on it as a firewall and it isconstantly popping up with warning etc that seem meaningless and although i click allow, it still persists and is driving me mad! what other free firewall can i put on that does not have this aggrevating habit.

tons of thanks
