Default A few Questions

Okay, Im about to order my new computer and im going to sell my laptop to my bro for some extra cash(that did not have internet access). I have a few questions.

My situation: I'm running on a desktop computer with a cable modem. It already has a wireless router hooked up to it for PSP/DS.

1.) Can I hook up both the existing wireless router for my bro's laptop and one of these:

for my HD gaming? Or will I have to buy a wireless network card and settle for a slower wireless connection?
2.) will this:

provide a stable internet connection for my bro's laptop?

THANK YOU!

Why don't you just connect your computer the the wireless router via ethernet cable, and get a good Wireless adaptor for the laptop.

Well, yea. You said you already have a cable modem and wireless router. The router should have a few ethernet ports on the back so you can connect wired devices to it. You just need a wireless adaptor for the laptop unless it has one built in.
