I've just bought a Packard bell imedia 14523b UK and as I finished setting up found out it is not wireless enabled. I have looked into it and hear I need a wireless adapter pci card. However I do not know which one to buy or how to install it. Is it easy to do?
Thank you.

Probably simpler just to use a wireless dongle - not all laptops are fitted with antennas if they don't come with a card. If you can find a panel on the underside that looks promising (ie, two mini coax cables), then this should do click here

Ignore that link - I misread the types it's suitable for.

Must drink less red - I see that is a PC and not a laptop. Therefore, a card will be easy to find, but I'd still be tempted to use a dongle (if it's a new machine, opening the case may invalidate any warranty.

thanks.I have sky broadband will all dongles work?

If you have a wireless router, they should do. If you want to fit a card, here is an example click here and a selection of dongles click here. Be aware the speed you get will probably be less than if connected by ethernet cable.
