Ideally a USB adaptor would be the best option.

Get a usb hub as move some stuff to that to free up the slots.

Do you have an ethernet port on your machine?

It converts a std ethernet port into a wireless one:)

Its the same thing as a gaming adaptor, I use a belkin one for my MP3 streamer. That is supposed to be hard wired, but with a wireless adaptor it makes is wireless:)
