I find that PC's seem to break down and get viruses even more than my laptops and I'm not really in the mood for the bulkiness of having a PC anymore with the endless wires connected to everything but you seem to need to connect a router (to have wireless internet) on the laptop. I've been doing some research on finding a way to connect to the internet on a laptop without needing a router (or a PC to connect it to AT HOME, because I know you can do that like at a coffee shop) but so far not really coming up with anything. Just interested in simplifying my life lol without the multitude of wires. I know there are USB devices that you can plug into your laptop to get internet but you still need a router to use them. Has anyone else been able to connect to the internet on a laptop without needing a router or a desktop PC at home?
