What is the easiest, cheapiest way to make my home pc wireless to the internet. There is one computer that is already connected to the router. Is there any way I could just buy something to make my other pc (which is in the other room) wireless so that I can connect to the internet. HELP PLEASE

I paid as little as 20 bucks for one. Adding wifi to your other PC should cost that much or more. Why not just get the wifi router?

You can take a Cnet course on such or do like most and get the router and set it up per their instructions.

If you can use a hotspot you might be fine.
