I am upgrading my system which is currently WinXP Home with Orange broadband via a Speedtouch modem. The new system is Win7 64 bit for which the modem is incompatible. I have been told that all I need is any make of wireless router. Is that correct as the Sppedtouch came as part of an Orange package? Would I also need to fit a wireless card or could I just use the Ethernet card in the computer as I don't really need a network. Finally if a wireless card is required are there any points to watch for use with a 64 bit system?
I tried the robinofloxley suggestion and, contrary to what my local Orange dealer had said, they offered a wireless router to replace the Speedtouch free of charge and no obligation to chnage my contract. As I am quite happy with the Orange service this was the perfect solution.
