So you already have a wifi connection, right? If so just tell him your SSID (the name of your router that you connect to on your laptop) and your WEP/WPA/WPA2 password (whichever you happen to use)

If you are using a cable from your modem to your laptop then you are going to need a wireless router.

Hey mouse thx much for your quick reply! That's the only prob, what is the WEP/WPA/WPA2 is that the wifi code? And yes I have a wifi connection...it's something like 88D889 ''ex' And how would I know what the SSID is? and 'if you don't mind?' what is the SSID "mean?" and the other codes? what are they? yup, a real newbie..thx much again :)

SSID is basically the name of your wireless connection. Its the name you see in windows when you are trying to connect to the router/internet.

If you don't know the password then its likely on the bottom of the device, should be a white sticker. Password = WEP/WPA/WPA2 code. I only used that because its what windows refers to it as.

That 88D889 would be the SSID.
