Picture of someone getting wi-fi

Getting wi-fi

Wi-Fi is a way of sending computer data around your home wirelessly. This means that if you have one or more laptop computers, they can all share the same broadband account without being plugged in.

You might need to buy a new modem for this, or add a 'wi-fi router' which plugs into your existing modem.
