How do I connect to the internet with my laptop without a router

You can connect to wi-fi hotspots (at great expense).

Other than that, you'll need a modem.

i have heard of an access point you just plug into your phone line and the laptop connects direct to the isp

At home the best way, if your laptop is wireless enabled, is to connect a wireless modem/router to any convenient telephone socket. The socket must have a filter fitted before the connections to any phone and/or modem/router. You should then be able to connected wirelessly to your laptop anywhere else in the house after configuring your router and laptop. Instructions for this come with the modem/router.
