Wirless card

Yes you need to get a wireless card.
It can be a USB wireless device or a PCMCIA card type, I suggest a PCMCIA wireless card because it is robust and does not use up a USB port.
To set-up the wireless router securely and the wireless card, please refer to my instruction - click on this link :-

Getting laptop connected to web-not Int. Explorer 8 issue

In order to get her connected legally, you will have to set up your own wireless network. This will require a broadband connection of some sort (DSL or Cable modem) and a wireless router. Your ISP or the routers tech support should be able to help you with basic configuration.

If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.

If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.

Setting up a laptop to our home computer


As you already have a broadband at your house, its going to be very easy for you to connect the notebook in the same network.

I would assume that right now your computer would be connected directly to a DSL/Cable modem.

What you should do at this stage is that you can buy a Wireless Router.

The computer that you are using at the moment might be a desktop and may not be wireless capable.

So your Wireless router would be placed right next to your desktop and the desktop would be connected using a wire to the same router.

Your router which is wireless capale will let your notebook also connect to the internet. I am stressing on the wireless as you mentioned that the notebook will be on a different floor.

Note :- I have given this suggestion assuming that the notebook you have bought is wireless capable.
If it is not than you will have to pull a wire up to the other room and you can buy a normal router as well.

Hope that you find this as a good suggestion.

My Wireless internet card don't work

i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.

Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
