Thanks, I will do. My main consideration has always been whether something like this:
would essentially run independently of the system with a USB adapter so as my desktop could connect to it.

Sorry but I have not found anything on there that helps. Essentially, do I need a DSL router and some kind of USB network adapter so as the PC can pick up the signal? Would my speedtouch USB modem be any good ro would I need to get a router with a modem too?

Id recommend getting a router (like the one you linked to), making sure its got a DSL modem built in.

Its a simple case of replacing the usb link to the computer with an ethernet and the laptop can connect wirelessly. And each can act independently.

Okay thanks. So if I bought that then could anyone reccoemnd a simple but useful RJ45- USB adapter? Or a router with a USB output?

Does your mobo not have built in ethernet?

28-10-2007, 10:49:00

No. Sorry, I thought I'd made my initial post clear but it wasn't. I should really not write posts when I am angry....... That's my problem, no ethernet and no way of installing a PCi card as all slots are full.

Odd, motherboards have had on-boards for years now.

If thats the case id say go for both on wireless, buy yourself a USB dongle such as:

Wireless isn't as reliable as wired, but it does work fairly well. Ive never heard of a USB-ethernet adapter but that doesn't mean to say they don't exist.

28-10-2007, 10:56:54

Whats the motherboard model matey?

28-10-2007, 11:00:36

Abit do a pci-e wireless card, which if all your pci slots are blocked could be handy.

28-10-2007, 11:03:35

For USB- Ethernet I was looking at something like
as my mobo is millions of years old, it's a very old PC you see.

Essentially I thought that product and the router I listed earlier might work out quite nicely for me as I no longer play PC games (odd bit of C&C, Worms or Dungeon Keeper on the laptop) but think that may be good ebough.

Does anyone have a router that includes a modem that they would reccomend to me? Most of the time I'll be all of 6 ft away but more range is always good. What sort of price should I be looking at? Sub £50 sound about right?
