your easiest solution would be to locate the router beside the pc and just run a cat5 cable from one of the router ports to the pc. if you need the pc to be wireless then you will need to get a wireless pci card for the pc.

thanks i will try that today. another ? for you. if you don't mind.

i just recently made my labtop wireless as u know. but it seems to be running slower and when i use it sometimes a message comes up and says this web page is not available off line click connect to stay online. but i never signed off.

and when i go to click connect it brings up my old dial up internet setup.

does this make any sense? thanks again

It sounds like your default internet connection is set to the old dial up and not the newer wifi connection.
