I have a pc.using xp.home on broadband by ethernet modem from Pipex.I have bought a new laptop which I want to use in any room.Can I just buy a wireless router and plug it into another phone socket and just use it as a seperate computer,if I can do I just put my Pipex broadband details into the laptop and also my email details.The laptop has Vista Premium installed.Thankyou for any help.
If I understood you correctly you are suggesting plugging another router into a separate phone line extension from your exisitng Pipex ethernet modem. Sorry you can't do that - Only one modem/router per broadband line. As betaman suggests you can connect a wireless access point to your existing modem or get an ADSL wireless router to replace it.
I have the same ISP and scrapped my 330 modem for a wireless modem router. Some programming is required when installing the laptop by means of a memory stick I am not that good on the theory so someone might help you further Regards Carper
