Wireless Help Please

Dear All,

I need to create a Wireless network at home so that a new games console can share my internet connection and I would also like to be able to stream music files around the house to a music network player.

I have a Broadband Router (Zoom x5) that is connected to my main desktop PC via USB. A second PC is connected to the main PC with an Ethernet LAN connection. The Internet is shared so both computers can access the Web.

What I would really like to know is whether to ditch the existing Broadband Router in favour of a new Wireless all-in-one job or can I just get some sort Wireless box that also connects to the main PC that just creates a new network?

If anyone knows what the best option is, It would be great to hear from you?

Hi, don't wanna be a nuisance - but don't forget to Green-tick your other Thread.

No Technotiger, you're not being much of a nuisance and yes I have ticked the green box in the other forum! THX

Reading a review on this web-site of the Linksys WRT300N - they said "we just plugged the Linksys router into our ADSL router and off we went." Is it really that simple, if it is I'll go buy a Linksys WRT300N tomorrow!! But, I'm sure there's probably more to it?
