How do I go wireless???

As a beginner to wireless connections I need help!!

I need to move my computer to a room without a telephone connection and believe I need a wireless router to accomplish this. Is this correct?

I have been looking at the Netgear WGR614UK Wireless 54G Cable/DSL but have a Voyager 105 USB ADSL Modem does this mean I need an ADSL router and would the Netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Firewall Router with 4-port 10/100 switch be suitable? If not, does anyone have any ideas which would suit me best?

I would really appreciate some help with this.

A "Cable/DSL" router is *NOT* suitable for your ADSL broadband via the phone line. You want a combined "Wireless Router & ADSL Modem" and the Netgear DG834G would be ideal. You cannot use your existing USB modem with a router.

The PC will also need to have a Wireless Network Adapter installed if it doesn't already have one.
