Hi, I just got an Acer Aspire 5920-6864 this month. I am a newbie and I have no idea what I'm doing. I've connected to the internet twice but only at 'hot spots', I guess. My question is: How can I connect to the net at home? Since my Acer connected before- that means it has a internal modem, right? So does that mean I need a router? I have wired internet connection to my Dell desktop using W.O.W. Is there anyway I could hook up to that? Do I need a PC card? Please help me, I'm so new- it's hard to understand all the abbreviations you guys use here. Also, I have a few misc. questions: I have a built-in web cam. Can anybody just turn it on? That's kinda scary. And I heard that somehow- other people can see what and where you've been searching if you are using their network. Like at work. Is this true and if so- how do I get around this? I appreciate your patience with such a fresh fish like me, THANK YOU!
