Wireless connection

I currently use a desktop connected via adsl modem from the main BT line box. Can I connect a wireless router via a dual plug from the linebox to work a wireless laptop and leave the modem to work the desktop,

The easiest way, IMHO, is something LIKE THIS

You config the Router (with built in ADSL Modem) with your current modem details... EG. Username/Password and Dialup number. (Usually 0.38 etc)

Then just set the Wireless side of things how you want them...

You could do, but wireless modems often have ethernet connections as well and you could use that if you want a wired connection, I'm assuming that you don't have the wireless facility on your PC.
