NTL, Broadband and Wireless

  Schopenhauer 17:09 01 Nov 2004

I have a desktop PC running Win98 connected to NTL cable Broadband via their modem, and a laptop running XP Pro. I want to set up a wireless connection and have been trying to glean information from this site and elsewhere, but my local dealer says that I am wasting my time since, in his experience, it is not possible to get a wireless connection to work with NTL Broadband, even NTL cannot do this. I had hoped to set up an Ad Hoc connection, (to save the expense of a router).

Does anyone have experience of doing this, ( or failing!) with or without a router?

Thanks in advance.
