was using my neighbor free wireless for the lap tops.
Unless you have express permission from your neighbour, this is probably not the best way to go about it! Nonetheless, now that you're moving and want your own wireless, you'll need a wireless router.
The modem you have, I'm guessing has been supplied by Time Warner Cable company. Do you know what make/model it is? If it's a decent one, then you should be able to connect it into a wireless router. This should be all you need to get wireless set up and running at your new place.
It's really just a matter of taking the data signal coming into your home (provided by your ISP) and splitting it up between all the computers in your house that need it. Whether that's wired or wireless shouldn't make a difference.
If you're not sure what you have, I recommend giving Time Warner support a phone call, explain you will be moving and want to setup a wireless network. Ask them how can you achieve this and how much will they charge you, etc... It'll give you a good idea of what parts you will be needing.
