wi-fi ???? with a laptop

  cheekybaldy2 20:58 02 Apr 2005

Please forgive the lack of knowledge, but ive just bought a laptop and Wireless bt modem. I cant seem to grasp the wi fi concept....Ive plugged the modem into the filter (to replace my bt broadband modem) and have connected a phone line to the PC, but the pc still just says no modem connected, I havent uninstalled the first modem software cos i thought the new one would override....Cant quite grasp the connection layout....phone plug to wi fi modem/then is it phone line to pc. the plug im using for the line states that its optional for PS2 consoles, so Im lost. please help with a wireless connection plan.For an idiot.....
