you need wireless network card (usb or pci) and a wirelss router (providing you dont have them already).network card plugs into pci slot,usb network card plugs in usb(obviously).the wireless router would plug into your phone line and provide internet through wireless signal to the computer.i got tp-link the network card was $25 the router was $80.my internet does drop out quite a bit so i wouldnt recommend tp-link as a top brand.

custom built gaming pc from early 2010,ps2 with 15 games all original,ps3 500gbs with 5 games all original,yamaha amp and 5.1channel surround sound speakers,46inch sony lcd smart tv.

I have verizon fios router already with my other pc so i think i would need a usb adapterlike a netgear belkin usb adapter. what do you think?
