Ok i almost orderd a 11mpbs wireless rotuer to hook up to my SBC DSL
Should i though? i mean should i just buy a 100foot eathernet cord and run it though my house? (BIG HASSLE) what would I get in a wireless router pakage? it just doesnt make sence.... how would a router work if theres nothing else in the package but-The router, cords, install disk,ACplug, and manual? could someone explain how they work? (what transmits the data from my SpeedStreem Ethernet ADSL modem?) basicly what connects to my dsl modem?

Your DSL Modem plugs into the router. It's a cat5 cable that lets your router and your modem talk to each other.

You need a wireless NIC in your PC so that IT can talk to the router.

You rbest bet is to head down the local BestBuy, and get the guy to show you exactly what you need, right there in front of you on the shelf.
