What Wireless Equipment?

  SDJ 14:26 19 Aug 2004

I have a laptop and an usb broadband modem from when I had a desktop.

I want to be able to connect to the internet wirelessly and also print to my printer wirelessly also.

am I right in saying I will need a wireless router with built in dsl modem and a seperate wireless print server? Is there such a thing as a wireless router with built in modem and print server or should I be thinking about a wireless router with print server and getting hold of a modem that will connect to the router?

Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

I take it you attach the usb print server to the router via the rj45 connection?
