In 2005 I had the laptop updated so everything on the keyboard worked, had more memory, and it had a wireless connection. (It's about 5 years old at this point.)
Around Christmas 2006 my hubby gets his Playstation 3 and wants to download the updates without having to haul it upstairs to the cable modem.
Today I bit the bullet and took care of my hubby. The wireless network works (and was easier to setup than the one I did for my in-laws). I can use the laptop in the bedroom and later tonight I'll try it in the family room. He's been downloading his Playstation 3 updates for the last hour or so. Now I'm just expecting the modem to go South or something else to mess things up. :-/
