    Advice on netbooks, please

    Hi, I currently have a main desktop pc, connected to broadband via a BT homehub.

    I'm now interested in getting a net-book, so that I can have portable wireless broadband around the house. Only thing is, I am completely clueless on routers & wireless internet. I use an ethernet cable to connect the desktop to the homehub, but I seem to remember the hub having a wireless option.

    Can anyone give me a "wireless netbooks for dummies" guide on what I will need to do (or indeed need to get) to set up the wireless connection on the netbook?

    you will to check if you router is confirgured properly for wireless. This might help: http://www.frequencycast.co.uk/guide.html

    and this:

    then on you netbook, it's a matter of searching for your wireless network and input any password you entered during the wifi setup on your hub to get access to the internet.

    All netbook, afaik, come with wireless. It's just power on and searching for wireless networks. Straight forward.

    I have a samsung nc-10 and connection was instant the first time I powered it on. Just searched for available wifi connections and I eneterd the password. That's it.

    Not sure how much that helped, but if you need any more info, someone else might also help
    ^^ In my opinion
