Thank you soo much! Yes, I think it's a dongle, but I don't have it yet. I just ordered it yesterday and will be here on the 10th. It's a 'Premiertek PowerLink Wireless 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Adapter' so that is a 'dongle', correct? I know soo little and am trying to learn. My laptop hooks up automatically so it must have a card inside it as I don't need a dongle for it. The gateway as the company calls it also has my phone hooked into it rather than just a router.
