Wireless networking question -pls help

  Tattooeddude 23:43 09 Aug 2003

I'm thinking about setting up a wireless network. The problems is I'm not very sure what to buy.
I have found a "Wireless-G Access Point" at Dabs.com
Dabs.com Quicklinx 2D12WS

Do I need the Wireless access point and a couple of network cards? Pls help. I'm not very sure.

If you are going to network two or more computers you can either use a Wireless access point and a hub, or you can use a wireless router.

In either case you'll need a wireless network adapter (internal or USB external) for each machine.

You can buy a router with an ADSL modem built in, and then use it to distribute the network. The router (if it has its own modem) connects directly to the ADSL phone line.

I have networked three systems in the last 14 days, this is what I used and can really reccomend them as being dead simple to setup!

Netgear Dg824 adsl/router
Netgear Ma311 w/less PCI cards for desktop
Netgear Ma401 PCMCIA for laptops.

And no I do not work for netgear, I am self employed.
