    Unhappy how to connect a old computer to a wireless network

    Hey,

    OK heres the deal....I have 3 computers a hp 515n desktop a hp laptop and a old bluelight desktop.

    now the hp desktop is the main coputer and has a wirelss router connected....and my hp laptop is connected to the hp desktop via wireless router.

    i want to connect the older computer to the net work but i see the older one has no eithernet connection. i see two spaces int he back that appear to be usb porrts but i'm not sure...... should a usb adapter work to connect this computer?


    what are my options?

    thanks
    -J

    Put a pci network card in that old comp. You can get a cheap adapter for around 15 bucks. Heck, I have a dozen of 'em in a box here!
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
