so my sister just bought a new laptop today but i was wondering if we need to get a wireless network adapter like a usb one so she could use internet in her room upstairs and my room is downstairs. I currently have a belkin G router but its not wireless its hooked up by ethernet cables but it has the little antenna.

her laptop
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem%26%26item%3D290214573630&ssPageNam e=STRK:MEAFB:IT

it also says this on the specs:

Wireless LAN
Realtek 802.11b/g wireless-LAN

does that mean it already included in the laptop built in?

because we was planning on getting this.

All you need is a wireless modem to broadcast the signal.


Wireless LAN
Realtek 802.11b/g wireless-LAN


Means it's wireless ready.



"I currently have a belkin G router but its not wireless its hooked up by ethernet cables but it has the little antenna."




The Belkin G router IS a wireless router. You should be all set.

If it survives through its' warranty then you should be happy. I've heard some shady things about Toshiba. Usually if it's cheap it's for a reason. Just my $.02. Good luck with it tho....

Toshiba is one of the best brands of laptops out there....... I've worked for several places fixing computers, we never see those.

Dell is a different story

Well like I said it was all I read/heard. Dell IS crap I can vouch for that lol. Their customer support is non existent.


Some ppl bash HP but I love them. Two towers and two laptops and nothing wrong with any of them.


For some reason I group Toshiba with Gateway and Acer. I'm no PC guru tho.....





It's like the debate over which make of car/truck to buy. You'll have opinions all over the place.
