Answers :

You can purchase a usb Ethernet adapter that plugs into the side of your laptop. You could buy a wireless card that could fit into your computers card slot.

If you mean that you don't have Ethernet in your home you could go wireless and use whatever free access you might find. Check out an electronics store for improvised attachments. Many types are available.
