    Okay I'm 12...bare with me please, but please don't use my age as an excuse to ignore my question. I recently got a MacBook 13 Inch computer, and I want to hook it up to the Internet. Do I need a wireless connection to do so, and if I do would I need to buy a wireless router? Because I can buy it I just don't want to have a whole new Internet connection set up just for my computer. If anybody can reply back that'd be great! Thanks!

    Nope! You're fine with just a wired connection.

    By the way, it's nice to see 12 year olds typing coherently!

    Wireless is awfully nice for a portable computer, though. It will work just fine with a wired connection, but you'll be tethered to your desk (or wherever) when you want to go online. Of course, you can always use the wireless elsewhere, like at friends' houses and such.

    Hear, hear!
