    Yes, but you will need to buy such a service from your mobile phone carrier, which will come with a 3G/4G usb adapter. It's very popular this days. Not sure what you have available in your country. Other wise you will need a wireless router for you home network which will do wired and wireless connections.

    Yes, you will need a wireless router. And, you would want it to support the 802.11n standard. I don't think the router brand will mater much. But, this ASUS should be very good. And, if there are many wireless networks near you, then you might consider a dual-band router, say, maybe, this one. There is a new standard coming out, but I think 802.11n is adequate for most anyone, and your laptop apparently does not support the new standard.
