Hi guys,
I am new to this forum and have joined up as am now getting a new laptop with vista so thought it would be good to join for some of your expert advice.
Anyway my question is about what wireless router I need?
I will be going wireless with my new laptop as it has it built in but am not sure what router I need i.e. speed for what I want to do.

1) I currently have Tiscali Broadband 8mbps pack on a ADSL Modem.
I do not want to lose any of the speed of this package.
2) The main things I use the net for other than browsing is downloading music and watching Football Match Streams so again what something that will be capable of this.
3) Finally I also what to connect my Nintendo Wii up so will need one sutible for gaming.

Is a Netgear 54mbps quick enough or do I need to go higher?
Have seen I nice one on Amazon for £44 if so.
Thanks.

The Netgear DG834G would be plenty fast enough for your requirements. 54Meg is way in excess of your current ADSL service so won't cause any slowdowns.
