Help please.

I have a laptop and have just purchased a wireless router. Set up has gone fine and the internet connection is ok.

I only have the one laptop and want to be able to use it around the house, but if I disconnect the router from the laptop I lose the internet connection and cannot reconnect wirelessly. Can the router work as a standalone or does it have to be connected to a pc?

Did the router that you purchased come with a wireless adapter to plug into your laptop (via PCMIA slot or USB)? If it didn't that is what you need for a wireless connection. Just make sure that it matches the router ie: if it is Linksys buy a Linksys adapter...Others may work but if you get one that is designed for your particular router than there shouldn't be any problems getting it to install and work properly...
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
