Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have an old Compaq 1260 running Windows 98.I want to connect to the internet to up grade but I cant because of the dial up motum.I have a netgaer wireless router in the home that runs all my new laptops. I want to set this old one up for the kids just to use word MS and for them to go onto the internet. Can you help me ?


Answers :

Ok you need to see if you have a wireless adapter to the laptop if you don't have one then you can buy one for less than 10 quid...Once you installed it then you need to input your network key code(if you have any sort of secutiy on your network which I suggest you have)..Hope this helps and it's a 10min job...
