Can I connect my old laptop to wireless?

Specs: Windows XP
Hi
This is really basic, but I have very limited knowledge and would really appreciate any help at all.

I have an old laptop, and I am not sure if it is able to connect to the wireless router in my new place. Is there any kind of adaptor I can buy and if so what do you guys recommend?

thanks

It would help if you stated the Manufacturer/Model of the laptop. Does it have a built-in wireless adapter?

If there is no built-in wireless adapter on your old laptop, then probably you need to get a USB or PCMCIA wireless adapter in order to connect to wireless network.

Thanks!

From what I can make out it's a HP Compaq nx9000? Do you know if this has a built in wireless adapter (I don't think so)? If not what is the best adapter to get?

Think it comes with built-in wireless adapter, you should be able to get wireless adapter driver for Win XP on this HP download page.
