wirless broadband route. Helping a friend out, he wants to go onto a wireless connection with his new Laptop. With it being NTL/Virgin Media I told him I think he need a Cable Wireless router but not sure.

So, for me to help him out as he has a dissabilty he wants me to get his router.

Can someone please tell me what type of Belkin or Netgear router I should choose, these places are local to myself click here & click here is it a dsl modem wirless router or is there a pacific one for think they call it Cable ?

You help would be much appreciated.

I'll presume your friend definitely has cable and NOT ADSL broadband via the phone line.

The Belkin 2nd in your 1st list seems suitable. As the laptop has built in wireless.

Thank u.

i have virgin media broadban, i am still using the modem that i got with it but for some strange reason when i do an ipconfig from the command prompt it displays my details as though i have a static ip. the strange part is that obviously i dont know of any that i have and also i when i try to get to the default gate using the static ip assign default gateway i cant although i can ping it. and the origional default gateway doesnt work at all. i have tried accessing it on IE 6 and firefox. does any1 know what could be going on?
