WiFi your Desktop PC for less than £10

The trouble with desktop PCs is that they need a wired network connection. This means that you’ll need to set your PC up somewhere near your router – and that’s often very inconvenient.

So, if you’re needing to work from home and you’re taking your office PC home with you, then this can be a real pain!

What you need is a USB WiFi dongle. This simply plugs in the back of your PC and instantly gives your desktop PC the freedom to work wherever it is most convenient.

Thinking this will be difficult to install? Think again! The vast majority of these little beauties simply plug in and work. You don’t need to do a thing!

TIP: When looking for a WiFi dongle, make sure you choose one with 5GHz and 2.4GHz capability. Some only support the slower 2.4GHz standard which will be frustrating.
