Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
I have a Dell Inspirion 3800 with a 10 Mbps Lan PC Card. I purchased a router in order to connect my Road Runner Internet service from my desktop to my laptop. My laptop does not respond except for a message saying "Network cable is unplugged." How do I get the Internet on my laptop? Do I need additional equipment? Thank you.
The LAN pc card on you laptop is not recognizing the connection to the router that's why you are getting an erro saying cable is unpluggged. Try to user a different ethernet cable or try the laptop to the modem check if you will still get the same error so that we'll know if its a fault with the lan card or if it's just with the cable.

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)
