What do I need to go wireless?
I'm networking stupid, could someone please tell me what I need to buy? I have a cable modem and a laptop. I would like to be able to use the laptop anywhere in the house. I'm assuming I need to buy some kind of wireless hub or router.
I've been looking at CompUSA(only because I have a credit card there and I just want to order it online and be done with it), but I have no idea what to get. Once I buy a wireless hub or router, do I also need to buy some kind of wireless PC card to go with it...or do the hubs/routers come with one?
All I'm looking for is something that I can plug the cable modem into that will have a wirless connection with my laptop, and I'm assuming that I need some kind of PC card that will interact with that device.
Some time in the future, I'm getting a desktop that I'll also want to connect to it.
What do you reccomend? What's the cheapest? Do I need a hub or router?
