please excuse me for being thick but how do you do that.

If you have a wireless router in your house you use that to connect to your broadband.

correct, but if you go hunting for a pub with wifi ;-)
if you had a iphone, it uses the mobile phone network to get the data for a webpage, so if you can get a signal to use the phone you can get on the internet.
if you want to connect to a wifi network your device will search for it and you usually have to put in a password to access it. sometimes they are unprotected so anyone can use it.
