I have a desktop PC running on windows Xp which is connected with Xtra broadband through ADSL. I have just purchased a HP laptop with built in WIFI. I need to know how to connect the laptop to wireless broadband as well as keeping my desktop PC connected to the modem through ADSL. Please help. i am a total noob at these things. Please mention the equipment needed and estimated costs.

What modem/router do you use to connect to Telecom Broadband? (brand, model, or if it's one of those included kit ones)
Do you know if the modem/router is wireless or not?

Find me on Twitter!
