Network virgin

Hi all,

I am about to get a laptop. I have read this months article about a network and it seems easy enough. Is it.

I have a reasonable amount of knowledge and have built my own pc. I think at the moment due to cost and differant standards a wired network would be best.

I have a pci asdl modem so would have to get a router/asdl modem combined. Laptop will have Lan included but will have to buy pci lan card for PC. Is it easy to configure. The pc has XP Pro and the laptop will have XP Home.

Any thoughts from you experts would be great.

Thanks
