Default Wireless Networking Query

sponsored links

 
I'm thinking of buying a wireless router but I'm clueless about all ofthis.

I have a desktop which has a wired broadband connection and a laptop which is wireless enabled.

The question is.. what do I need to buy? Do I need a wireless network card for my desktop or does this connect to the router through an ethernet cable?

Please help!

Cheers!

I've got a similar(ish) setup and am running with a Netgear router which has 4 ports built in, so I can hard wire to my desktop PC, the wireless is taken care of by wireless enabled laptop and the kids PC is taken off a hard cable.

Got it dirt cheap cos its using the older 11b (I think thats right) instead of 11g (the new stuff)
