Yes, you can connect a PC wirelessly to a DSL connection. You will need a wireless access point/router and connect that to the DSL modem via USB or ethernet. Configure your PC to attach to the wireless access point/router using the wireless (802-11a,b,g) or eithernet.

How do you set set up high speed internet without an Ethernet connection on computer?

That depends on the TYPE of internet connection available to you. Two common types of internet connection are: ethernet over a cat 5 cable, wireless ethernet If you want to connect over a cat 5 cable your computer will need a network interface card (NIC). Most (but not all) modern computers are manufactured with a built in NIC. Often it's part of the motherboard. If your computer doesn't have a NIC card you can purchase that piece of hardware and plug it in to an available expansion slot. If you want to connect over a wireless ethernet your computer will need a WIRELESS network interface connection. Most laptops have a built in WiFi adapter, but again, you can purchase THAT piece of hardware and often it can be plugged in to either a USB port or the PCMCIA slot, depending on how your laptop is equipped. There are options for connecting to the internet using your USB port.

What do you plug your Ethernet in to get internet connection?

The Ethernet port is usually the largest socket on the computer (about twice the height of the others). You run your Ethernet cable from the computers Ethernet socket to a similar socket on a device called a Router. The Router is connected to your telephone line or cable TV or however you have chosen to connect to the Internet. You will need to have set up an account and pay for the Internet connection with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) who is often your telephone or cable TV supplier. The ISP will often include the Router as part of the connection package. Computers (particularly laptops) will usually have built-in wireless connectivity, for example all recent Macs come with AirPort, which will connect to a wireless router without the need for a an Ethernet cable. This means that a laptop can be used anywhere within the range of the router. the ethernet cable connects you to lan
