    selecting a router

    OK. Got the cable modem, cable broadband, and way too many wires. My wi-fi card is a Hawking, 802.11b/802.11g.

    How do I get a compatible router?

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    My Belkin is a router with wireless capability. I'll have to check on the model # tonite.

    pia are you in a house or apt. my router works fine in our apt but we're moving tomorrow into a 4 bedroom 2 story house so I'm thinking I'm gonna have to get a wireless extender for the upstairs.

    Phish,my Dlink worked fine in my 2 story house.I had the connection and router upstairs and went out on my deck downstairs with good to very good signals. I imagine that an extender could improve any connection though.@ Pia,yes cable to cat to wireless.
