    Yes, rodeognome, a wireless router should do it for you. They generally come with about 4 ethernet ports, so you'll have no trouble keeping your one computer wired. I personally have had a Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless router for two months and am pleased with it. Am sure that other brands and models are just as good. If you don't already have a wireless adaptor in the notebook, I'd recommend a PCMCIA (notebook) card rather than a USB wireless adaptor.

    Read the box! :) Some routers come with an adaptor, some don't. If you get a combination pack, make sure it is a card for desktop, not notebook.
