Hi all
Hopefully one of you guys will be able to help me and make me sane again.

I have just bought a couple of refurbished laptops for the kids.

These are the laptops Dell D600 Centrino 1.4Ghz Laptop, 1GB RAM, 40GB, DVD-ROM/CDRW, Wi Fi, XP Pro.

I have Sky broadband at home with a family laptop attached via a Ethernet ( I think ) cable.

What I want is for the 2 new Dell laptops to work wirelessly with the SKY Broadband.

This is my problem the laptops came in a box with a charger and nothing else. I have got no idea how to get them to connect to the internet.

Can anyone please give me an idiots step by step guide to do this.


Any help would be gratefully received I

Many thanks in advance

Olig
