Wireless Home Networking

  Mr Confused 14:33 26 Jun 2004

Further to a previous discussion I had this forum I understood that all I needed to get wireless networking was a broadband modem (which I already had), router and 2 wireless network cards. So I purchased all this only to find today the Router was not compatible as found here

I have AOL Broadband and was supplied with a BT Voyager 105 USB ADSL Modem. I have installed 54g Wireless Network Cards on two computers and would obviously now need a compatible router. Does any one know where I can such a router which will support 802.11g and the USB Modem and a decent price?

Any help would be appreciated...

The modem needs to be an ethernet modem as opposed to USB. Cat 5 cable (straight through and not crossover) from adsl modem to router. router must also have a wireless access point built in to broadcast signal to wireless cards.
The router you refer to is compatible with the cards - it is 54g - same as the cards. It is the modem that is the problem if it only has a usb connector, you need ethernet from modem to router.
