laptop and internet connection

I am considering buying a Dell 610 and my question is will I be able to use this for more than one broadband account when I am moving around? Can I use my girlfriends account at her house and mine at my house? Will it just connect as usual by plugging the adsl usb modem into a usb port or is there some other way they work?

Sorry to be so ignorant but thanks in advance for your help

Oh yes and can anyone tell me what I would need to buy to get a wireless set up in my home so that I can use my desktop and laptop anywhere in the house please

Someone at work told me I would need a wireless card in my pc and one in my laptop. Is this true too. Though my main question is as above.

One question at a time please. However:

Your first post - Yes, but you will have to use the CD provided by your girlfriend's ISP to load the ISP's setting onto your laptop.

Your second post: click here

Your third post: Yes
