    Default Need help with wireless connection for 2 computers

    Hello...I am a newbie with computers and I just bought a brand new Dell laptop with wireless N...my roommate has a very old HP desktop that does not have wireless card. What is the best setup we could do? I would prefer to have the direct connection to my laptop (for when I download movies etc) but also be able to move it to the living room on the wireless. My roommate will then need a wireless card or that dongle driver thing right?

    Would you recommend I do this or should I let him have the direct connection and I just do wireless....if his comp is super slow will that affect me??

    Any advice is muchly appreciated as well as recommended brands to buy for a router.

    THX!

    D-Link is a good brand for routers. I have the DGL-4500.
    Your roommate will only affect your speed if he is also downloading.
