laptop connection via wireless router

  cd72uk 11:28 22 Aug 2007

I am a complete novice and would like to know what equipment I will need to connect my laptop to the internet so I can use it around the house.
I have a wifi enabled laptop, and an orange broadband modem, I have no other computers, and would like to connect to the internet from any room in the house rather than having to sit in the room where my telephone jack and modem is plugged into. I assume I will need some kind of wireless router, but as only have laptop cannot plug in via cable as then will be tied to one room again. Please could someone advise me. Budget is very tight so am looking for a low cost solution, many thanks.

I am in exactly the same situation as you cd72uk. I read this thread on Saturday and ordered the wireless router and I've had it delivered today although I cannot work out how it goes together because of the Orange speedtouch modem? any ideas anybody. Hope someone out there can help a desperate lady....
