You can use any wireless modem stick if your wireless modem can connect to the stick it has to be for your particular modem. Make sure that the stick is compatible with the Operating System you are currently using for Win XP or otherwise, the drivers are loaded and make sure that the firewall settings are on for your devices to access inbound and outbound conformities. This should be a simple plug and play situation.
Turn off the computer and your modem place the stick in the port you wish to use. Then place the driver disc in the DVD or CD ROM whichever you have to install the driver with most likely it will be in the stick the software for it and it should auto-run. Then turn on everything, wait for a bit for the works to settle in.

Assuming your current laptop has Windows, then it should work with a new laptop running Windows. If you're getting a Mac, it might work if you simply plug it in, or you might have to install certain drivers to make it work.
