No. All you need is wireless access point for the gateway/router, a wireless network card for the PC ( your notebook ) and you are ready to go. Why you need wireless access point is that it will translate Ethernet traffic to the wireless signal thus different frequency.2) If I need more than #1, I would assume that I need a wireless router, but why?
It's the same as you need DSL/Cable modem for connection to your ISP from your gateway/router.
This document will explain everything you need to know about wireless networking.
