    you'll need to buy a wireless adaptor, either a pc card for installing within the pc, or a usb adaptor. they'll be around £15 or so.

    or run a cable from your router

    instead of a usb dongle. the advantage is that once fitted it stays put, and there's less chance of knocking it or damaging it.


    personal preference really, plus you'd need a spare slot at the back of your pc
