You will need a wireless router to connect to your broadband connection. Then you'll need a wireless card for your PC (if it doesn't have one built in already).

Once it's installed and working, don't forget to setup the security. This'll prevent others from "leeching" off of your wireless connection or hacking in to your network/PC.
