Default Wifi

How many people have or use it commonly and like/trust it?
Also anyone know of a product that serves as a cheap way to generate Wifi?

I've had wifi/dsl for a year now. To "generate" wifi you're going to need a Wireless Router. Linksys, Netgear, and D-Link are all reliable brands. A regular 54G router will run you about $60 retail, somewhat less online.
