Any wireless modem/router will do, Netgear, etc., towser, but be careful you don't choose the cable connection model of whichever one you opt for, choose the ADSL model.

No, you don't, towser. I'm assuming your laptop is "wireless ready". But you do need to have a LAN/Ethernet port on your laptop.
