I have an Acer laptop running with Windows Millennium Edition but it is not equipped with wireless connectivity.

What is the cheapest way to make my laptop wireless? And how do I go about it?

Any products come to mind?

Thank you strawballs for your response. As I am completely new to making a laptop wireless, are you saying that all I need to purchase is a Wireless USB Adapter?

Yes, what O/S is it running.

Sorry should have read properly.

The one I linked to will run on ME but any one that states ME on it's spec's will do.

You will also need a wireless modem/router

postie is correct if you want to make your home internet a wireless network. If you just want to connect to other wireless networks then strawballs is correct.

Personally I'd use a PCMCIA card click here rather than a USB dongle but that's just my choice.
