Bluetooth is not WiFi,   they are two seperate technologies.


you need a Wireless adapter 802.11b/g for your laptop,

you would connect the two to each other using an adhoc connection,

If you had a wireless router for your internet you could connect directly to the router, (and then you would not have to have your main computer on for you to access the internet.

BTW if your Main machine is near your phone point (for internet connection) you would not need a wireless card for your pc, as you could connect via LAN cable to the wireless router (make sure you get one with lan ports)

You can go to best buy or staples and purchase a range extender. Follow the instructions and it will greatly improve the wireless signal throughout your home.

D Link Wireless N router keeps having to be re-set

I've seen this on a router that was broadcasting very little signal. (in my case the next day it died. When the laptop is running move away from your router and try to determine where it loses signal strength. A router is good from the factory for about 200 feet with no obstructions. In most homes I give them 30 to 40 feet. Be aware that windows and glass doors nowdays use a metal mylar film between the glass to reduce infrared rays. If you lose the signal very soon then I'd say the router is dying.

Good Luck
