It depends! If your laptop has WiFi access and the place your staying provides WiFi, then you should be able to access the Internet via WiFi. If you don't have access to WiFi, then you might be able to use 3G - if your laptop supports it or you have a 3G dongle. This depends on there being a 3G service where you're staying. If your vacation is abroad, then Internet access via 3G is…

I just purchased a laptop with a build in wireless card do you need to purchase a high speed internet access?
Your computer must have a network to access if you are going be able to get on the Internet. Internet Service Providers can set you up with an account that will allow you to login at 'hotspots's, such as the coffee shop. IF you want to have access at home, you will have to set up an internet account, and then buy a wireless modem or router to allow you to connect to the internet.
Do you have to have a desktop and an LAN to use a laptop and Wifi to connect to a cable internet modem?
First thing to do is to scan for any WiFi networks that you may be able to access. You may struggle here as many WiFi networks now require a password.

So I guess to answer your questioin, no you do not need a desktop. Just…
Laptops generally come pre-wired for both wireless and wired connections to the internet. Connections are made through a modem (through physical connection or through a WiFi signal) acquired from an internet service provider. It is more common to access the internet without wires. Many businesses provide free WiFi access for their clients (eg. cafes and libraries).
Does the device that gives your laptop internet give other things like an IPod Touch wireless WI-FI?
It is possible that the router (wireless network) that you are connecting to is not currently connected to a modem (the internet). In this case, your computer will say that it is connected to a wireless network, but the network is not connected to the internet. If you have access to the router, check to see that the router has an ethernet connection to a modem.
How can you access the internet on your lap top if there is no internet hook up where you are staing?
Because a wireless network is not specific to your home computers, you must secure the network so that other people cannot access your wireless connection. Without security, anyone driving by with a laptop or Ipod could access your internet connection and download items, or even access you personal information. Wireless security puts a password on your internet connection so that only the people you want using your internet will be able to access it.
