I want to enable my daughters pc to connect to the net via a network with my pc but witohut having to install cards or change my internet connectn [I have broadband with BT via a ubs modem connection).
I was advised to buy 2 usb belkin wireless G USB Network Adapters [54G].
However I cannot configure the netowrk to run.
a) Do I need a router? b) If so will this sit between my modem and pc? c) Do I need 2 adapter si.e. one for both pcs? or just my daughters to receive? d) Any tips on where I maybe going wrong?

To get full 54Mb connection they will need to be connected to USB2 ports. However they should work at the lower 802.11b rate of 11Mb/sec (easily fast enough for an Internet connection at 1Mb) on USB ports. Try setting the belkins to the lower speed.
The USB High Speed message is for information. It shouldn't stop the device working.
All you have to do is open up one side of the computer and fit the card into a free PCI slot and then install the software that comes with the card and if you are running win XP then you might not have to do that.
