one way would be to buy a wireless PCMCIA card, and a wireless router
with a quick look I found the card for $30 and the router for $55

or simply a network card for the latop which should set you back less than a equivalent wireless card. spyder's suggestion allows you the freedom of the laptop but a simple network card will be cheaper.
