First you need to get an AOL multi-user broadband account.. call them and tell them you need to upgrade your services.

Purchase the following WIFI router or similar;

Then you need to get WIFI adapters for your computer(s)  Choose the one that is appropriate to your machine

Step-by-step guides are provided in each of the products.

When you create your WIFI network you will need to protect it with WEP, that is explained in the manuals.
