Laptop/"Mobile" Internet Inf needed...

  AnthonyB 01:39 20 Jan 2004


I wish to purchase a Laptop in the next week or so, it is just for casual "round-the-house" stuff. However, What kind of device do I need to connect to a laptop (any sort?) to be able to "pick-up" the signal from the Phone line, instead of having it wired up all the time. I'm not talking about "out-in-the-city" but just round the house. Was thinking of a £799 Compaq btw. I heard somewhere a while ago that you connect something to the phone connector (bit like those cordless headphone things:) - so it picks up signals from certain distances round the house.

What you need is wi fi stuff so you can set up a home wireless network.
