Need computer advice

My husband just got a laptop through his job and neither of us are very knowledgeable about them. How do we connect it to our desktop. I think it has a wireless connection.

  • I am not sure what you mean. Are you referring to networking them together? The wireless connection will only work if both computers have wireless connectivity. Aside from that, it depends on what OS both machines are using.

  • If it has a wireless card built in then all you need is a wireless router and the wireless key that is on the router. You click to connect on the laptop and put in the code, check the box to have the laptop remember the code and you should be good to go.

  • You won't need to connect it to the desktop. If you want to go on the internet all you need to do is buy a router and follow the directions on the CD-ROM
