Well a few things you would want to consider:#1) You will HAVE to get a wireless router.#2) You will have to get a wireless receiver card for your laptop, unless it has one built in (most newer laptops have this).#3) There are some basic steps you ought to follow to secure your wireless network, lest some oppotunistic neighbours decide to steal your bandwidth. You can use google for that, or ask on this forum if and when you do get a wireless setup.

use WEP or WPA to secure your wifi connection.
