I have a toshiba u300 vista laptop and a celeron 2.8 ghz windows xp pro desktop computer, hooked up with wireless internet.

At the moment, my belkin wireless (built in modem) router is connected to my desktop which enables wireless internet for my laptop.

If i was to sell my desktop computer what could i hook the router up to? As i want to keep the laptop wireless. Where could i plug the network cable into instead of plugging into the back of the desktop. Is there a cable or plug i can buy that goes into a wall or how would that work?

? your question doesn't make total sense

describe the physical connections here

does a cable come from the wall (your internet connection) into the router/modem...then an ethernet cable into the desktop? if this is the case...your desktop has nothing to do with your internet connection....to test this turn off the desktop and see if you can still connect to t he internet with the laptop
