For wireless you would need:

One of these for and internal install http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2052810031+1133010139&Configurator=&Subcategory=31&description=&Ntk=&SpeTabStoreType=&Order=BESTMATCH&srchInDesc=


One of these to connect through USB


One of these for a laptop that didn't come with integrated wireless

Different types vary in speed and range, anywhere from 54mbps (fine for most short distance home networks) to 300mbps (for long distances or high bandwidth such as heavy file transfers or video streaming.)

I would probably go with a USB adapter since it sounds like you're comfort level for networking is relatively low and they're easier to install (no opening the case or anything like that)
