You will need a device similar to <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WAP54G-Wireless-G-Access-Point/dp/B00007KDVJ"> This One </a>. Though there are many other <b><i>Wireless Access Point (WAP)</i></b>options out there. You will also need a wireless card similar to <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WMP54GS-Wireless-G-Card-SpeedBooster/dp/B0001D3K3A"> This one </a>, again there are many options for this. Make sure that the card and WAP will talk to each other. The latest standard is the "N" standard, but if all you are gojng to be using it for is internet access, then save yourself some money and go with the "G" standard.
I would recommend going to a Best Buy, Staples or Fry's or somewhere similar. Talk to the technician/sales staff in the networking area. They can guide you through this process. Get a copy of the <a href="http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/DummiesTitle/Wireless-Networks-For-Dummies.productCd-0764575252.html">Wireless Networking for Dummies</a> book. It is easy but there are some gotchas and it would be useful to have someone local you can call or ask questions when you buy the gear.
