I have 3 computers and one laptop networked together all XP I am now looking to go wireless, is this a good cheap starter kit and does it have all I need. With Pipex BB ADSL click here

The router will be fine. You'll need wireless network adapters for all the computers of course, although the laptop may have a built-in wireless adapter if it's a reasonably new machine.

Also bear in mind that you don't need to go totally "wireless" - you can mix wired and wireless connections.

If you do go wireless with all computers, the available bandwidth of 54Mbps for standard 801.11g (which will be closer to 30Mbps in practice) is *shared* between the wireless connections, they don't each have the full bandwidth.

<<< 801.11g >>>

Should, of course, read 802.11g !!
