Can anyone get wireless broadband?
Wireless broadband (also known as wi-fi) is a broadband network without the need for wires trailing from your computer.
To set up wireless broadband at home, you will first need a broadband supplier.
Once you have a broadband supply to your home, you will need a wireless adapter and each computer you want to connect to the network will need wireless receivers (if they don’t have them already built in).
Setting up a wireless network is typically quite straightforward, and most of the equipment needed will come with set-up instructions.
Most broadband suppliers also offer packages that include wireless equipment and offer telephone and online support for customers setting up their network.
