Wireless connection of Modem to Phone socket?

  gplatt2000 14:54 04 Jun 2004

Hi all. I am planning on moving the computer into a iffernt room in the next few weeks, but have come across one problem: it would be extremely awkward to run a wire from our phone socket, to where the modem will be with the computer. Is there any kind of product that would get rid of this prolem, like a wireless system? Any ideas would be great, cheers

gplatt2000 - you will have no problems with adsl wireless modem - -or you may want to take this oportunity to go the wireless modem/router , well, route - - just incase you have more then one PC in your house.

I think most wireless adsl modems come as routers.

So would I have the Wireless ADSl Router plugged in at my phone socket, with a wireless network card (something like this? - click here) in my computer?

thanks again

For some reason my link is not taking you to the right page. In Ebuyer, search for 'wireless adsl'. The first one comes with a PCI card. Yes, the router plugs into the phone socket, the card in the PC picks up the ADSL signal.
