Wi fi - Wireless use in the US

FYI - Wi fi is on avail in the US. I was baffled by Aol's explanation on how it works; so here goes:

If you have aol broadband (example) in the UK, just sign on as normal in an area that has wi-fi. If your computer does not come with wireless connection, you need to purchase a wi fi chip (at any reputable computer store for about $15). This will enable you to connect as normal.

Just wanted to let you know.

I was in the US last month. All I had to do was connect to the wi-fi in the area (coffeeshop). Once it was on avail I logged on as usual to Aol (my UK broadband connection) and away I went. Anyother issues on this I'm aware of.
