    Default home internet wireless question

    i'm getting wireless broadband set up at home. my laptop shouldn't be a problem because it has inbuilt wireless. the desktop upstairs doesn't. it's running XP. can i just get a generic wireless adaptop dongle thing, like this, for example? and will it just plug in and work? - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Wireless-USB-2...1%7C240%3A1318

    It will but you will need to set up the security on both comps to match.
    See the instructions when you get it. It will take 5 min on each comp'

    If you dont all the estate will be on your net for free!

    cheers guys.
    just spoke to someone at work, he said it would be better to get a good dongle, not necessarily a cheap one, it may work better. he said it would be best to get one the same make as the router box [which is a 'thomson']. i looked on e bay just, but didn't see any made by them.
