i am going to send aol b.band around my house using a wireless network. basically, i would be v.v.grateful if you could tell me a company that you recomend v.highly, or for that matter not at all! Simply the model would do (especially if it was good at sending signals through thick walls, which i have)

Thanks, your cooperation would be gratefully received

I am using a Netgear DG834M Wireless ADSL Router with Modem built in and a BuffaltoTech 54G PCMCIA for my laptop. Signal is very good if you place the router in the right place and height. i have used the Laptop from the garden to access the BB Internet and share files without a big decrease in signal strenght.
Ofcourse, the further you are away from the access point, the weaker the signal.

Couldn't agree more. Using the Netgear DG834G, set up in all of 30 seconds! Was previously using the 824m. (Now inherited by my Dad) Both have been excellent, I rather suspect I shall be using a Netgear...next time.

Just installed a network using D-Link PCI and PCMCIA cards. 20 quid each from ebuyer. Easy setup and work fine.

BB is only 512K, so 11MB is more than enough.

cheers, but would it be a good idea to get 54mb so that my equipment is future proof?? Will I regret only getting 11mb in a year or 2 say?

thanks

Just an alternative I'm typing this through my Belkin ADSL Modem/Wirelss Router which has an excellent connection. In fact my BB connection seems slightly quicker than before.

what model is that exactly??-do you use it through particularly thick wall?-because if i have any, that will be my problem.

It's the F5D7630, I've not got pareticularly thick walls but it works fine from the garden.
