Wireless laptop

  Rob Hughes 20:08 09 Dec 05

I have a PC at home with broadband. I am thinking of buying a laptop and would like to know if it is possible to use it to access the internet wirelessly, but not just at home. I know I'd need a laptop that is wireless-enabled, but would I need any other equipment, and would it have to be linked to my broadband connection at home - if so, how far away could I use it? Or would I need to set up a new, separate broadband subscription? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

To use your connection wirelessly you will need to purchase a wireless router and if you connect using an ADSL connection one with a built in ADSL modem. You will not need to have another broadband account as you can share you existing one through the router.

Im not sure about the range it will depend on your surroundings as well.

To use your wireless out and about you need to find a wireless hotspot and most of them you have to pay to use. Once you've paid you'll be given the connection details and then you can connect.
