- Wireless router. First you will want to connect the wired ethernet hub or wired modem to a wireless router. You can get a wireless router for a reasonable price. Next you will want to connect a computer by ethernet connection to the wireless router to set up the wireless network. This will allow you to name the wireless network and assign a password to it as well. The set up is quiet easy. The wireless router comes with an install CD/DVD that has an install wizard that is self-explanatory. Once you have set up the router the next thing to do is set up other computers to the wireless network.
- Wireless adapter. Some computers already have a wireless network card in them. Other do not but you can purchase a good wireless internet card at a reasonable price. Before you purchase the wireless adapter you will want to make sure it is compatible with the wireless router. Usually it has to be the same brand as the wireless router.
