Belkin Wireless G plus Notebook Card

Found 4th Mar 2007
Hi there,

I'm looking for some advice.

I've got my PC in bedroom wired to the telewest modem box. But I bought a second hand laptop which came with a Blekin Wireless G plus notebook card.

Does anyone know what kind of router i need to buy so i can use both the pc and laptop. I don't mind the pc still being hard wired and only the laptop wireless but i need to know the box i need.

Cheery:)

most wireless routers also allow you to plug in network cables too.

just ensure that the router allows x number of wireless connections plus y number of wired (10/100 LAN) computers

hi there, do you mean any belkin wireless router is compatible with this card??

any wireless router will be compatible with any wireless notebook card as long as they both do 802.11b and 802.11g

(you don't need to get a belkin router just because you have a belkin wireless card on your laptop)

Just be careful - the top 2 in the list (from those links) aren't routers, they're signal amplifiers (which you use halfway between a computer and wifi router if the signal won't stretch - it kind of "bounces" the signal off the booster in the middle).

oops

I have a Linksys WRT54G and use ntl cable broadband and it works a treat
4 ports on the back for wired connections and 2 ariels
Got my main pc wired and 3 other pc's wireless with no problem
wep encryption too ;-)

my son has the belkin card on his lap top as not wireless, but we run our main pc with the belkin router i have been very happy with this and it runs another 3 lap tops of of this though they are wireless i cant coment on any other router but the belkin is very good for settings and security as routers go, thought this bit of advice would help!!:thumbsup:
