Hi, i asked a while ago about getting my laptop connected to the internet via home broadband, and i was advised to dig out my wireless router and set it up.

I managed to dig out the router still boxed but there is no disc there, which the virgin media site says i need to complete the router set up.

Does any1 know if it can be set up without the installation disc, or even if there is such a device that simply plugs into the home pc, and into the laptop so internet can be used anywhere in the house ( like a usb device)

Many thanks
Vikki

as above you really don't,
if its a cable setup most require you to use a network cable (like a phone cable but bigger) to connect between router and modem and for first use its best to use another network cable to the computer just to set up the router
once they are attached turn on in the order, modem, router then pc leaving a minute between
