Question about HP Computers & Internet
SOURCE: about wi-fi
Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

Yes you should be fine. You have to configure the router before you can access the router, That should be covered in your manual. Also look for a button or switch on your computer that turn your wireless on and off. Make sure this is set to on.
