Stealthy internet

I was just wondering..

At my house there is a wireless router..
The wireless is used by a laptop upstairs and other computers are hooked up to the router. If I were to get wireless internet for my computer.. Would something show up on the laptop notifying it that another computer was accessing the wireless interent? Or would the second wireless not even work because there is already one there. IF someone with some knoledge in this area could inform me a bit it would be appreciated.

Unless you are stealing someone wireless network (or using your parent connection, that explicitely forbidden for you to use), you shouldn't be worried...

Are you asking if more than one computer that has wireless capability (a wireless network adapter) can connect to the wireless router at the same time? If so, then the answer is YES.

What do you mean by "wireless internet" service? Cable or DSL with a wireless router? EDGE, EV-DO, etc.?
