new router help

  Green Army 18:58 23 Jul 2007

i need to buy a new wireless router but i want one that dose not have to be connected to the computer. i want one that can be plugged in to the phone socket and send wireless around the house to two laptops and a desktop. i need it to be close to the phone socket as my desktop is a long way from the phone line.
thanks Paul

All of them will do that. Initially, you will have to connect one of them via the Ethernet cable to set it up and implement the wi-fi security.

i have a netgear DG834g will it work with that one or do i need a new one.

The DG834G will be fine. Use one of the laptops to set it up via wire initially. Set up the wireless security, input the key when asked for on the machines and then you can remove the wire.
