one more quick question. If i was to buy a wireless card would it matter what make it is cos the sky broadband is netgear. would a belkin wireless card still be compatible

I'm writing this to you now over a Belkin, ....... off a laptop, and I have two in other Desktops upstairs. All three, communicate fine with the SKY Router. Take your pick, but Belkins are generally cheaper. Just make sure you get the 125Gplus, not a standard 56g and in the right size/format for each machine.

what do u mean by right size?? do u just mean get the right one depending if u have a a desktop. i have a dell dimension 8300. would the belkin one u told me about earlier be alright???

Yes, sorry, just meant get the one you need for either the Laptop, Desktop or both
I prefer the Card Slot type for Laptops as opposed to the USB ones, but that is just my own preference. I think there is little in it now, but try to go for the fastest you can find at the right price.
A normal PCI slot type should do the job for the Desktop and are really easy to install.
Let us know how you get on.

If you don't like the sound of wireless, another option to look at is a Homeplug (google it). You would need one at each end, but it basically uses your electric cabling as a network.
They do work well!
