I am about to get my first laptop probably used.

I use a router with eartnet and usb conecters on my 2 desktop pcs for internet use. is ther somthing I can plug into this and into the laptop so I can acces thi net wireless?

Also when Im away from home can I conect my mobile to the laptop for internet use I use the vodaphone network. I know vodephone do a thingy just for this but I will only be uusing it for emails and a few other small aplications so there mothly service price is a bit high realy I need a pay as you go service.

Also what conectors/slots should I look for on a laptop if I do go for a used modle

Any help much appreshiated.

Use Internet at home

You need one wireless access point (AP)/router which connect to your existing router, this AP is kind of base station. One suggestion for you Linksys BEFW11S4 11Mbps Wireless Broadband Router £37.82 click here

If your laptop has wireless capability build in, you do not need anything else. Otherwise, you need one wireless adaptor for your laptop. One suggestion for you here: Linksys WPC11 11Mbps Wireless PC Card £22.41 click here

To use Internet on move. (1) 3G solution, BB connection but too expensive vodaphone's offers click here
