I've been struggling with dial-up for ages, not wanting to sign up for BBand until I was certain I wouldn't have to move house. I'm now going to sign up with Post Office broadband, and they supply a modem with the standard deal I'm going for.
Initially I'll connect up with ethernet cable as the PC is close-isn the the phone socket but after Xmas I need to move the PC upstairs and get set up wirelessly.
I'm not entirely sure what I need to do this. Will any type of wireless router be OK ? (eg this cheap one from Dabs:
How will I be able to check that the wireless router I buy is compatible with the Post Office modem ? Ideally in advance of signing up for the deal ... I'll look a bit stupid if I move the PC and can't connect to broadband ...
Also, my PC is quite old and doesn't have a wireless card in it. It is possible I get get a USB wireless adaptor so that the PC and wireless router will be able to communicate OK ?
