My daughter has a laptop with a wireless card installed and the problem she has is that the Internet connection is received through a pc getting the signal from a friends house across the street. I need to know how to get the laptop to communicate with the pc.and get an Internet signal also. I gather that the pc is using a usb adaptor to receive the signal from across the road. any ideas please

The best idea is to get your own wireless modem router and set up your own network. Then your neighbour can enjoy your signal.

If your friend has no problems with you sharing their connection then just goto control panel and run the wireless connection setup wizard. If you can see the available network then you should be able to connect providing your friend has given you the network key they are using.
