Goto Control Panel\System and Security\System and tell us what ext HP model it is.

Or look on the label underneath (Don't drop it!)

I suspect a widescreen HP will already have wireless, just needs turning on.

Advice will be more accurate with Model Number.

The wireless key on my HP laptop is the F12 key (it also has an antennae symbol on it)and only requires to be pressed on its own and not in conjunction with any other key.

If you mean when you are away from th home then you will need a 3G dongle from one of the mobile phone networks.

Something like this

fredmc08 said that it is connected to wireless router so it is covered around the house!!!

Sounds like he means he wants a Mobil Dongle like T Mobil or 3
