    I just bought my wife a Sony laptop that has wireless connectivity. At home we have a 4 yr old dell that is connected to a cable modem. What do I need for her to be online at home. In my opinion she can go to Starbucks and get connected with the trial version of broadband that came with the computer.
    Any help is appreciated.

    a wireless router can connect to laptop via wireless and your
    machine with a cable.

    you need a wireless router with some wired ports and
    a short ethernet cable
