Re: router question
I don't think you need anything else but the router, once you connect that up to you dads computer then set up a network, the only thing you will need to do is encrypt it, then write down the key sequence so when you turn on your laptop and the laptop picks up the signal of you dads network you can connect, it just a case of typing in the key code you used.
There are lots of routers,most common ones are the Belkins and Netgear, look around for offers, depending where you are try Ebuyer if you from the UK.
