    First you've got to make sure you've got your internets working properly by sourcing some warez. Then you need to uplink to the mobile intrawebs.

    :withstupid: A wireless PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) installed NIC (network interface card) for your desktop is about 50-70 depending on where you get it at. It will replace your current hardwire only NIC card.

    You do know how to open up your tower and install a card into a pci slot, right?

    wow thats a lot for a wireless card. browse around and you can pick up some for $20-30, some probably even free after rebate. and it doesnt have to be a pci card, it can be a USB adapter (make sure its 2.0 both your computer and component) or even built it.

    after you have that, easiest way is to scrub off some dumb ass with no protection or someone generous. if thats not applicable, go with what B described.
