Good wireless choice please?

Hello all,

Well I have a hundred pounds burning a hole in my pocket and thought it would be rather cool to go wireless, but wanted some reassurance from those 'in the know' that I'm looking at the right/best stuff for my money.

I'm on 512 broadband with Wanadoo(Freeserve) using their stingray look-a-like modem on a Dell laptop on WXP home.

This is what I'm considering...

How does it look to you?

I'm off to watch my five year old daughter at her sports day now so I'll look in later.

Many thanks

Polite bump...

This looks like a good deal to me. I use Netgear products and have had no trouble at all with them, but Belkin is a good name and the price looks good. I think a similar offer is available with netgear stuff too (or was a week or two back). Not really sure it makes a lot of differnece at the end of the day.
Take note of the second review down from Marcus Smith (Ebuyer page you sent us to) re setting up WEP and changing the default login to the router. Also, most important, change the SSID that is broadcast to one of your own making.

johnsims thanks.

Hardware wise it'll do the job though?

Thank you,
