I have two telephone lines coming into my home. The first

Resolved Question:

I have two telephone lines coming into my home. The first I use for my landline telephone in the living room. The second is in another room and I connect my PC to the net using this one. Each line has a TalkTalk modem. To save money paying a monthly line rental for the line connecting to my PC I wish to close it down.
How do I set a wifi connection to connect my PC to the first line?

Peter,

Does the Windows XP computer have a built-in wireless card?

No wireless card! And unlike my laptop no little slider to switch to wifi

Peter,

If the computer does not have a wireless card then you will need to purchase one a (USB) to enabled wireless on the desktop computer.
