    I am not sure what you are saying as it is a terminology problem depending on the hardware you are talking about.
    But let me guess you have a laptop with wifi and a broadband router somewhere in the house. Then the laptop will connect by wireless to the router and then to the broadband so all is OK. Second scenario your laptop has Wifi but it is not switched on and also a 3G dongle capability so it is connecting by your phone providers 3g network then you will also have a wireless connection but not "broadband". Go to the desktop then click on the little computer icon on the right hand side of the task bar it should tell you what you are actually connected to.
