I Found this to be the cheapest so far

BELKIN 125MBP ADSL MODEM ROUTER
PCMCIA CARD
4 PORT SURGE PROTECTOR

All for £77.84 including delivery and VAT from misco.

Is there a cheaper option to this, would like a speed of over 100mbps and a compatible pcmcia card included in the price. I dont need that surge protector, thats just free with the package.

This could actually classify as a deal actually. The modem router itself is on sale at Argos for £79.99 and the pcmcia card for £24.99.

3Com 54Mbps with a free PCMCIA card - £54.99 (about £60 devlvered)

this is a great router set a few of them up for people be sure to update the router firmware before you do anything though cos theres a known bug in the shipped firmware (update availible form the 3com website)

What ISP are you on? AOL are quite fussy, so if you're with them then let us know. :D

aol's ok now just need to set the mtu to 1400 otherwise it has ahissy fit. used to be a real problem by only allowing specific routers but now its open to all.

Is it? I bought a Netgear in the end from PC World. Not bothered though because it was on offer - 89 quid with a free wireless USB dongle. It's supposed to be a good router too, and sets itself up for AOL. I could have got cheaper, but they wouldn't have really been wireless (and we'd have needed an ethernet card)

The netgear DG834Gv2 is well thought of - 66 quid at amazon inc. free usb wifi adaptor.

Only 54Mbps though. Ask yourself if you really want the latest and [possibly] best, or just something that works reliably ;)

i Bought a Linksys Router & Linksys PCMCIA card (thought i'd get the same just to be sure they were compatible).

Think it came to around the £60 mark. Got the card off Ebay brand new & the router at Amazon :)

these products sound great, cheers guys.
one more question, if i just want to use it to share the internet at 512kps, wud there be a difference between a 54mbps and say 125mbps.
#10
Hi,
Not really because the 512kps internet uses so little amount of transfer, you would probably get the same speed with a 11mb. It only helps when you transfer big files, or try watching movies between computers.

I use 54mb/s Linksys WRT54g + as you state, it only uses the amount of bandwidth your cable/ADSL connection works at. 2mb/s works fine in any room of the house + outdoors about 40ft away, with an Excelent to Very Good signal level.

Linksys WRT54g at Amazon About £44 delivered

Linksys WPC54g PCMCIA at Amazon about £28 delivered. [Other cards should be fine though].

Not the cheapest, I didn't have to buy the card as my laptop has one, but I recommend the router for it's performance.
#12
bare in ming that if you get the linksys wrt54g it is a router only, and doesnt ahve an inbult adsl modem, so youd need to also buy a adsl ethernet modem
#13
Oops :) Thanks samriley, I misunderstood the request. No modem included in the WRT54g, it's a 4 port wireless broadband router
