Hi Lads/Ladies,
i have a laptop and really need to get wireless internet set up. I hear you can buy something called a router. Can anyone tell me exactly what i need to do in simple instructions to get my laptop running with wireless internet.

Cheers, much appreciated,

Is it a wireless enabled laptop?

What is your current set-up for internet access?

Hi, yes it is a wireless enabled laptop. I currently use BT Broadband basic from my computer desktop.

Is that basically it then mate?

You need an adsl wireless router, this should come with a ethernet cable but if it doesn't they're cheap enough at only a couple of squid. You'll need the cable to setup the router initially as doing so via wireless will crash the router and you'll be locked out.

You need a adsl wireless router, not a cable modem type, you can buy them with built in modem or not. Check out your local computer store. That's basically all you need including the built in wireless on your laptop. Just follow the instructions which come with your router.
