Have finally got round to buying my laptop and now I'm not sure what to do about the internet.
Do I just phone up my internet provider and tell them I've got a new lap top and want to install them on it? will they send me a disk and a router? If they do that will I still be able to use the broadband on the desktop computer or will I need to open a new account?
I have found the disk they sent me when I upgraded the desk top computer to broadband, my brother said to install this on the laptop but I don't know if that would acheive anything since the laptop is wireless, although it did come with a moden cable.
Oh dear, can you tell I'm not very technical?
Please advise me on what I'm supposed to do, thank you
Ok. Plug the cable into the back of the laptop and see what happens. With some IP you don't need to use the disk so try this first. Have you tried switching it on to wireless (button on the side) to see if you are picing up a neighbours signal?
