    Hello,
    I am thinking about making my computer wifi (wireless). What do I have to do? What do I have to buy? My internet modem is in a bedroom, and I just moved my computer to another (living room). Hence I have cable laying around. So, I was thinking wifi. I appreciate any and all assistance.

    You'll start with a wireless PCI NIC, and of course you'll need a wireless router on the other end. Given the price drops recently, I'd shop for the 801.11g wireless equipment...
