Wirless networking (again)

Yesterday I posted a query regarding wireless networking using a wirless router.

Configeration would be my PC connected to a NTL cable modem via the router and my two sons PC's with Belkin USB wirlless network adaptors.

Although I have not purchased the router yet, I downloaded the instruction manual from Belkin's web site and it looks as though I may have to purchase some additional hardware.

My cable modem is currently connected to my PC via USB. Looking at the manual, the modem has to be connected to the router via erthenet, which is no pboblem as the moden as an erthenet port. However, it appears that the router must also be connected to the PC via the same method. Unless I have overlooked something, I assume that I will have to install an erthenet adaptor in my PC. If this is the case, what exactly would I require.

Thanks in advance.

You need a wireless network adaptor to talk to the router wirelessly, or a 'conventional' PCI network adaptor to connect to it via an Ethernet cable.

does the router have a dsl modem included?, if so you will not need the current usb modem, just connect the pc as suggested in jazzypop's post and configure the router with your isp details.
