Default A question on Wireless LAN

sponsored links

 
I went to this company and was chatting to someone. He had the same laptop as me, but he was walking around with it whilst typing to someone on MSN.

Is this Wireless LAN and if so, what do I need to be able to do this in my house with my internet access?

Cheers

Confusing stuff. Can someone explain in idiot terms.

Heres what I have. I have a standard ADSL phone line connected to my PC upstairs. What would I need to allow my laptop and my downstairs PC to use the net without being connected??

Thanks

Moving to Networking ....

What you will need is simple, either use 2 wireless adapters (one in each machine) and set up an Ad-Hoc wireless network, running ICS on the PC with ADSL connection.

or

Get a all-in-one modem/router/wireless unit, this will replace you existing USB modem, then each workstation will each need a wireless adapter.
