New desktop - cant connect to internet...

Hi.

Im sharing a wi-fi connection with my neighboor, and I had no problems getting online from my laptop. I just bought a new desktop however, and I cant connect it to the wi-fi connection - do I need to buy some kind of adapter or something.

Thanks
Jakob

You need to buy Wireless adapter to have wi-fi internet on your desktop pc.
Give a look at this.

You'll also need to ascertain whether you have any spare slots on your motherboard and if so, what type they are.

They also make nice USB wireless-N adapters for a good price. I prefer Linksys personally.

Note: They are backward compatible with wireless-G networks.
