making a desktop computer wireless

I have a HP desktop with Windows Vista.  I recently purchased a wireless G Router.  I have had a friend to stay with me, and he brought his desktop computer with him.  Is there anyway we can hook that computer in a different room and make it wireless, or do i have to plug it the the router?  Thanks

You can install a Wireless G network card into his tower and then enter the router password on his computer and it will connect.

 

If you really dont care about cost / quality I would go with the Dynex Wireless G PCI Card, I installed it in my mothers computers and had no problem.

Are you sure of this? Did you actually look inside the tower? If thats the case, you will then need a Wireless USB WiFi adapter.
