hi

i am hoping someone can help me choose some equipment to get me up and running using a wireless connection, i currently have a new advent laptop on windows xp home,

it came with a usb wireless dongle,

i am connecting using a usb speedtouch modem to virgin broadband thru a bt line.

what equipmemt do i need so i connect on a wireless connection?

do i need to buy just a asdl wireless router or do i need an actual modem router?

any help would be good, i would obviously like the cheapest option! thanks diwlsn

You need an ADSL modem/router. 3Com, Linksys, Belkin (certain models) or Draytek (if you can afford one).

You just need anything that allows ADSL gateway access.
