i've recently switched to virgin broadband

is there any way i could go wireless without spending a lot of money ???

you need a wireless DSL (cable) router, and if your pc isn't already wireless enabled, a wireless adapter (pci for desktops, pcmcia for laptops, or usb for either)

Is this Virgin cable or over a BT line? If the latter you may need a combined modem/router.

good point; I was assuming cable since that's how I get my Virginmedia BB

yes, you can wire up the desktop to the router and have the lappy communicate wirelessly. easier initial setup via the wired pc too.
