Found 21st Jan 2010
I am just wondering if there is any type of device that I can get that I can use for my internet to be able to have it Wireless for Netbook and also be able to use a ethanet connection too for our PC please?

I have no idea what I would be looking for or if it would be down to Virgin ( our internet provider ) to supply one.

Thanks to anyone who can help me.

You need a router compatible with an external modem, often called a cable router. Most home routers these days incorporate a switch for multiple wired connections and a wireless access point for wifi connections.
