Wireless internet connection on Dial -Up?

  Mr Jarndyce 08:46 08 Dec 2004

I would simply like to connect to the internet from my laptop ( which has built in wireless technology built-in) from any room in my home. But I have read about routers/access points but they all seem to mention Broadband. Is it possible to connect wirelessly to the net from my laptop even when you don't have broadband... if it is possible how would I go about it. Thank you very much for your time.
