  • You can have WiFi hooked up at your house. All you have to have is an internet connection, and a wireless router. The router sends a signal to whatever computer you're on. Most laptops have a thing built in that connects to wireless internets when they're detected. If you want to make a desktop have a wireless connection most routers come with a antenna looking thing to plug into the desktop computer. I don't know if that answers anyone's questions but that's pretty much all I know.

  • Gamma rays fly through the air and bring the internet to your computer lol! My husband told me once but I forgot I just know that you have to be in a WIFI hot zone and those are only in certain locations. Can you get it hooked up at your house? Darn now I am curious.
