A router is the best way to use high speed connection via ethernet that includes a firewall for your protection. For a company with multiple offices, the ethernet you use is probably already connected through a router that is connected to your network (if not, you should use some type of router). For a laptop, you probably would find it easier to use a wireless connection (WIFI) which would be a wireless router. You should have no problem adding a wireless router even to a hardwired network (if you have an IT staff, they would probably be best handling that to keep up network security - their job).

you only need a Access point (AP) just connect it to your utp
cabe that providesyou with the internet connection and the AP
will provid a signal for you without any programing required (for stranded operation) you don't need a router ( a wireless router is
expensive)

Attention: Fingers and Maxi,
Thanks for reply, but now Fingers said that Wireless Router is
good and Maxi said Access Point is good, I am confused.
We have many offices in this institute, every office is provided
a single internet connection (Ethernet) point, that can be used
in own computer/Laptop. Now I just want to use internet
connection indirectly without plugging cable in my laptop
because I have WIFI card in my laptop. Kindly give me final
advise. Thanking you in anticipation.
