I have a PC with no wireless capabilities but my lap top has and I've installed a NETGEAR router.I still have my speedtouch broadband modem so is it possible to still get internet connection on my PC?

If so, how do i do it?

Get a pci ethernet card for your pc, very cheap and easy to fit.

What is one of these and what does it do? Obviously, I'm completely clueless!?!

Not with what you put in the title, "Dial-UP" no

BB yes

There's no reason why you cannot continue to use your braodband modem at teh same time as the Netgear router (assuming that teh router isn't connecting to the internet as well).

The only downside is that teh lappie won't be able to connect concurrently with the PC. For that you'll need a wireless router with an integrated modem (most of them have this).
