You just require a decent router for your PC....but are you on cable or adsl?
cos if you're on the latter you'll be better off with a wireless modem/router like the Netgear DG 834 G.

One more thing...if you are with AOL phone them and ask for a free wireless router...several members on here managed to get one ...if they say no just threaten to find another ISP.

When you get back further advice can be forthcoming.

Read your PM ..ignore the reference to the for sale item cos that is not wireless.
This is what you require

Thats a router only, is the OP looking for a modem/router ??

With the one posted above, you still need your modem connected to your phone line, then the router connected to your modem......

He's on cable Chris ..so no requirement for ADSL....I misunderstood that he had a wireless laptop...so it looks like a package with a wireless router and laptop wireless card is required.

Ah sorry - thought he was on ADSL !!

so that should be ok for my router??

The Linkskys from Morgan is ideal...if yourlaptop is not wireless you'll need a wireless card...the type you slot into the laptop.
