      connecting 2 PCs to broadband

      Hi, I have 2 PCs. This one I've been using the broadband on for a while is only about a year old.

      I have another computer in my bedroom which is about 4 years old with XP. What do I need to get for the other computer to make it work with wireless? Is there any minimum requirements for wireless to work on the other computer, and what do I need to have/get for it to work.

      So long as the older PC has either a spare PCI slot or spare USB port then you will be able to connect using wifi.
      If you have a spare USB port then you can buy the USB wifi dongle from Sky or a similar one from the likes of ebuyer.com or PC World.
      If you have no USB port then you can buy a PCI wifi card that plugs into a spare PCI slot on the motherboard.

      to be precise the sky netgear wg111t wireless adapter is 23.50 in total thats 20 for the adapter and software and 3.50 p&p. Get in contact with sky sales and they will gladly sell you one and deliver it out. As it was stated before as long as you have an active usb port which for a 4 year old pc you should do then you will beable to connect wirelessly with this adapter. Gd luck
