Wireless internet setup

My friend has just bought a new pc with wi-fi compatibility.
Can he connect a modem/router to his phone line and use his pc remotely from there or does he need to have it connected before he can then go wireless with another computer?

Cheers,
G.

Yes once the router is set up that will work

However it is usually easier to set the router initially while connected by cable to the first pc to run the software.

But he needs Broad Band first. If he just want's to use the Dial-Up modem he will have to connect by modem wire to phone line

It seems fairly straightforward now, though any problem will probably occur during setup.

Thanks for your help once again,

Grezza.
