Broadband and Wireless...?

  mike2004 10:55 21 Oct 2004


Having now got my brand new PC internet ready (sorted a problem with the internal modem!). I now want to go Broadband and wireless... I am currently using AOL dial-up over an NTL phone line (not impressed with either!).

Some details;
- Windows 2000
- no decent firewall or anti-virus s/w

How can I make the transition to broadband and wireless pain free!.

Appreciate your help.

Im guessing your going to have ntl cable internet if so:

First off you will need ;

A Router with ethernet connection for modem

A wireless card(s)for pc(s)

A NTL Cable modem

A good firewall like sysgate click here

A good antivirus like AVG click here

And a budget so people can help you choose the right rouer / w/less combo!
