I have just purchased a new wireless laptop and wish to conect to the internet.

I have a cable broadband connection, what bits of hardware would I need to by to use my laptop wirelessly.

Also is it possible to access the files on my desktop PC using my wireless laptop and is so how do I go about this and do I need any other pieces of hardware to do this.

I know my way around a PC but I am completey new to wireless and networking any help you guys could give would be greatly appreciated.

You will need a wireless router any one of these will do for a cable connection click here I have the Linksys wrt54g with NTL faultless for about 2 years.

Yes you will be able to access your desktop files if you make them availiable for shareing, I could spend ages explaining how to go about it and security for the wireless but this site does it a lot clearer click here
