Question
Hi,

I have a 2008 laptop that's not wifi ready. It doesn't have wifi.

How do I get an internet connection on it, and what are all the things I need to connect to the internet on my laptop.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kari

Answer
Hi Kari

All you will need to connect to wi-fi will be a wireless adapter.  This can be a wireless card, dongle or a PCI card that will go inside the laptop.  I recommend a simple USB dongle that you can simply attach to your laptop.  If you require any assistance in finding one then please let me know.

Thanks

Steven
