I have a computer (wired) already hooked up to the internet with SBC GLOBAL broadband. I also have another computer (wired) hooked up. I would like to add a laptop (wireless) to the connections... I have a router and a network netgear hub switch. Would I need anything else? And how would I do it? Internet works fine and all in teh computers. I just don't know how to set up one for a laptop... Thanks

54 Mbps Wireless Access Point (Model - WG602)
When you buy this, run the setup disk that comes with the access point if it has ones. Some things that you need to do to increase security:
Disable the SSID broadcast
Turn on some kind of encryption (WAP if the wireless card in the laptop supports it, if not then turn on WEP)
Rename the Access Point
Change the Access Point login password
Hope that this helps.
