Assuming your PC has wireless hardware, you just connect to the AirPort like any other wireless access point. This varies according the the version of Windows your PC is running and the software you are using to manage the PC wireless connection.

These might be questions better asked of our Windows-using denizens.

Many thanks for your response VegasACF ............ You are probably right .. this would perhaps be better aimed at the Windows experts ........ the household having aquired a Mac computer it seems a waste of resource to let it just service one little MacBook when it could also supply the two PC's that reside here as well using wireless technology ...... the bonus being to get rid of some of the mass of cables that seem to breed behind every PC!............:D
