Shopping for a Laptop, and would like to know If I need a "router" for one, since, in the specs i sometimes read,:Wireless enabled, and so forth...

Example is the ADVENT - AMD SEMPRON 2800+ at pc world, which it is desribed as "wireless enabled"

Won't a router be the only thing i need? - since the laptop has usb ports etc?

If the laptop is "wireless enabled" you will just need a router.
