hi i have a network of 4 wired and 2 wireless pc's all are networked and working the network is also working with my wife's laptop the question i would like to ask is when she is using the laptop with no access to the internet she cannot get a connection do we have to buy a data dongle and pay extra from virgin who i am with at home or can i do something with a spare wireless router

Nor sure I understand the question. You say 'the network is also working with my wife's laptop', then go on to say 'she cannot get a connection'. Could you expand a bit, please.

If she is away from home, the only option (unless she is near a WiFi hotspot in a hotel or cafe etc) is to pay loadsamoney for a mobile connection through a dongle.
