Ok, so i'm off to Uni in September, and i don't think it's wireless internet in the Halls, it says

Therefore i'm going to need to buy an internet connector for this data point? Only thing is, where do i buy one?

Thanks.

assuming your laptop has an ethernet card built in which the vast majority do have , all you'll need is a ethernet cable and the uni software - which'll they'll probably give you on a CD when you register

It'll have one, as eggs are eggs, the laptop will have one.

It'll look like the square hole on this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Network_card.jpg

People went around selling them in my halls for £5. Many people will also need to buy them at uni, so you will almost certainly be able to pick one up when you get there.

Don't buy anything. Wait til you get there. You'll probably be wasting your money otherwise.
