Laptop wireless to desktop.

Wireless computing is discussed endlessly here I know .
So please run past me the simple instruction that I can pass on from me 'a wireless know nothing' to a friend who is a tyro user.
This friend has a simple desktop machine with ADSL Broadband connection.
He purchased his wife a laptop for Christmas so that she could get on on with her own things.
This laptop is 'Wireless enabled'
So what what does the desk top need so that the laptop can access the the broadband connection?

A wireless router / modem combo.

Best to check with your ISP as to what kit is, snd is not compatible. Note that you need a router with built in ADSL modem capabilities.
