    Ive got a phone socket at one side of the room and my PC at the other side, i want to run a wireless connection between the two. My ISP is TESCO.NET 512k Broadband which i can acces from two seperate phone numbers (Home and work) which im sure is ADSL.
    Am i right in thinking i need a PCI wireless network card and a wireless router.
    1 Is this correct
    2 What makes/brands are recommended for use with my ISP
    Why do people **** of Belkin, the IT blokes at work say their stuff is good!
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    yes you need an adsl router and eithr a pci or usb adaptor. ive used belkin and only had minor problems. but i much prefer netgear products for the price. very simple to use.

    Can add my weight to netgear. Very easy to setup and get running.
