      Connecting a PC when router is in a different room

      hi everyone!

      well skyuser helped me loads the last time i had a problem (more so than technical help on the phone) so thought i would ask again. im sorry if this is a really silly question and has been asked before.

      well i have two laptops connected wireless-ly to skybb. but we recently got a new pc which is in my bedroom. now the router is located in the kitchen downstairs.

      so i am just wondering how i can connect the pc to the internet?

      thank u!

      I take it that the PC is wireless too? if not you may need a loooong ethernet cable

      Two choices:
      • buy a wireless card or usb adaptor for the PC
      • run an ethernet cable from the router to the PC
