I have just purchased an acer laptop and have an exsisting desktop at home with wired broadband internet.

I want to install hardware so that I can connect to the internet wireless from my laptop but without having to install wireless hardware on the desktop.

Can anyone suggest appropriate hardware for this.

Is your broadband cable or asdl?

If the latter:

Is your current broadband modem also a router?

Is the laptop wi-fi enabled?

What you need is a broadband router/modem such as the d-link DSL-G604t and a receiver for the laptop.

I setup a Linksys wifi network in my house. It took about 30min to setup. I had to but a router & enther net modem but it is worth it.
