I have LAN, established in my home connecing three computers a XP,2000, and 98. This is done by using a ADSL Router. Except I have another computer two far away from the Router (even though there are long blue cables, I don't like the look of them). I also have a laptop i would like to connect to the network. I was looking at a computer magazine and it had a few products. If I wanted to keep my network, and install a Wireless LAN PCI Adapter the computer and a Wirless LAN PCMCIA adapter in the laptop. I think that links the two together. But how do link it to the router, so I can share Internet, and the already made network.

Any help?

You can pick up a PCMCIA wireless adapter or an external Ethernet or USB connected wireless adapter for your laptop. The external ones have a longer range, but they're less convenient. You then need a WAP (Wireless Access Point) to connect to your ADSL router in any available Ethernet connection. Configure them and you're talking. :)
