Hello all

My housemate has wireless internet and has agreed I can use it. I have an i-mac (without built in wireless receiver) and a pc laptop. I used to connect these both to the internet with a simple ethernet switch.

What would be the best solution to connect these both wireless now? Would it be an interchangable USB device? If so what would you guys recommend?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

QUOTE Thanks
