ADSL Router ?

If I install a wireless ADSL Router, instead of the normal type, how does it actually function ?

My desk top is upstairs, so if I use a laptop downstairs, would the Router have to be near to the laptop or would I get a connection with it remaining upstairs ?

Cheers.

I use a Belkin router (both wired & wireless) that is sat under the stairs (not a really good location) and I can use the laptop at the bottom of the garden - about 60-70 foot away.

Not that I really want to at this time of year!

Don't think you'll have any problem and, as I understand, siting the router upstairs will give better coverage.
