    A family friend has blueyonder and is wanting to go wireless. She only has a laptop so I'm needing some advice on what's the best solution. I have ADSL and use a Netgear DG834G which works great.

    I'm thinking of going down the Netgear route again with:

    Netgear WGR614 54Mbps Wireless Cable DSL Router (NW-010-NG)
    Netgear WG511 54Mbps Wireless PC Card 32-bit CardBus (NW-009-NG)

    What are people's view on the router? Is good/bad? Should I look at another make?

    Any advice is welcome :)

    Sorry for being impatient!

    Linksys WRT54GS Wireless-G SpeedBooster Broadband Router/4-Port Switch (NW-006-LS)

    Linksys WPC54GS Wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SpeedBooster (NW-011-LS)

    I think those should do the trick. Or go for the models without the Speedbooster.

    i'm with Blueyonder and the WRT54GS works perfectly.

    Cheers I'll consider the Linksys, does anyone have any experiences with the Netgear WGR614?

    I have just got a Netgear WGR614 and think its great :) I bought it after my WRT54G (Ver. 2) died on me and Linksys were a royal pain in the backside when I asked for a replacement. (See here: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=17579395)

    So yeah, WGR614 every time for me :)

    Edit: The web panel is nearly identical to the DG834G, very easy to set up :)
