    I've just bought an IBM Thinkpad, and want it to be able to use the
    broadband connection on my desktop PC at home.

    The desktop has a copperjet external ADSL modem (using Freeserve broadband),

    I know I need a router - I was thinking of DL or something similar, and a
    wireless networking card for the laptop, but do I need anything else?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    1) If this ADSL modem only connects to your PC via USB, it won't work
    with a wireless router. You're usually best off to get a wireless
    router with ADSL modem built-in, such as a Netgear DG834M.

    2) Go for products that have WiFi-compatibility and support 802.11g.

    And don't forget to setup the security on it.
