Hello jayne 1000;

Are you wanting to make a wired or wireless connection on home broadband? Already have a wireless router?

A Wifi dongle is an add on adapter for a system that doesnt have an internal Wifi adapter.

What make and model of laptop did you get? Very good chance you'll have Wifi wireless networking card already installed.
