you will need a wireless hub/switch/router to install into your system and a wireless card to attache to your laptop and all should then work ok.

yes this can be done, yes you can get a usb wireless devise for laptop, you would need to get a base station to plug into your wired lan though. i have both hard wired and wireless connections on my local lan (hardwired rj45 going back to 16port 10/100mb switch, and wireless Buffalo 11g 54mb for laptops downstairs) all sharing 1.1mb adsl connection 7 x PC's 1 x laser 1x inkjet
