    hi everyone
    i currently have a dynamic pppoe adsl connection which requires me to dial in everytime i connect to the internet through my adsl modem

    what hardware would i need so i can be able to access the internet wireless from my 2 laptops without having to have my main computer turned on or having to go through the main server?
    in other words i would like to access the internet from my 3 computers independently.

    regards JC

    A wireless router, or a wireless router/modem combo.

    Then in each device (ie, the three computers) a wifi device, either ethernet, PCI, or USB based.

    hardwire the desktops or get a pci wirless adapter. then you need a wirless router still. What connection do you have at your house?
