This could be a stupid question, but I don't know enough about computers to know what I'm doing!
I'm about to move my elderly father into a retirement home. He loves sending emails and getting on Facebook. He currently has an older Dell Optiplex 740 Desktop (running Windows 7 Home), which is now connected to the internet via CABLE. His ISP is Earthlink.
The retirement home apparently only has wi-fi -- not cable. What will I need to do to get him connected to the internet? Will the computer connect automatically? Or do I need to buy some kind of "wi-fi connector" thingy? Is there anything else I need to know?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
