You should just be able to use a USB Wireless adapter. Personally, I like "Linksys" brand the best.

Is there a way to hook into my dsl internet to get wifi


Does your DSL not have a wireless router? If not, you can certainly get one for cheap...walmart has Belkin/Netgear/ASUS wireless routers for about $40...the instructions are pretty straight-forward. It's a cheap and easy. let me know if you need assistance.

First RESET your router to defaults.
For that press RESEt button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.Press it for 10 seconds Then all settings are defaults.
Then connect your router to computer with ethernet lan cable.
Then you can access with below link
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then click WAN settings and set WAN serttings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want ip address from router.
Click on wireless enable it then configure your router as WEP or WAP then add Code it is your password to connect wi fi .
Then save and restart router.

I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
