Mong Kindle/Ipad Question for technophobe

#1
Righto men,

question for you:and bear in mind I'm an utter computer mong

I have obviously a desktop computer which is connected by a CABLE into wall socket to give me internet access etc at home.
I don't have a laptop or one of these fangled things that people have so that you can wander all round house and get access while crapping/wanking in bog etc (ie wireless).

Now if I say, bought a Kindle Fire would I have to connect it directly into the wall socket where my internet connection is (ie same thing my comp connects to) to be able able to use it around the house?

and in fact is it able to do this?

Like I say don't laugh to hard but I'm an übermong with stuff like this :mrgreen:

Thanks for any sensible replies

My ears were burning. You'd need a wireless router for a Kindle fire, iPad or any other type of tablet computer

All you need is a wireless router to replace your existing one, a filter (that will come with the router) and a power socket near enough to your telephone line that willpower up the wireless router. The LAN cable for your desktop will then run out of the back of your router

Do you want woofers and tweeters too?

Most modern isps virgin sky talk talk bt etc wireless now comes as standard.
You should be able to persuade them to give you a wireless router for free just threaten to leave.
They are fairly straight fwd to setup

see "fairly straightforward" is going to turn into a nightmare of biblical proportions I can imagine, its not just a case of yanking the old one out and plonking this in instead and hey presto is it?

more like wtf, nothing works :(
