I am on adsl broadband and i am going to buy a wireless router to connect my laptop. I want a basic model but i don't know if buying the cheapest model i see is the best option.
Could somebody explain the most important things to look for when buying a new router, thanks.

What are you using at the moment?

If you just want basic connectivity eg no films or video then an 801.g is probably fine but if you want better range or want video then consider the new n standard.

Does your laptop have wireless? If not you will need an adaptor.

Just using a standard Tiscali modem at the minute.
The wireless connection will be used for browsing so no need for n standard.
Yes the laptop does have wireless.
