      Question Going Wireless - What Extra Hardware Do I Need?

      Hi, This is my first post.

      I am in the throes of changing from NTL to Sky BB. The NTL Cable router was exclusively for Broadband and I am on BT for our phone.

      My PC is nowhere near our BT phone line so I need a wireless set-up.

      Apart from the goodies supplied by Sky what extra hardware do I need to add to my PC?

      Cheers!

      The router that Sky give you is wireless, however you will need a wireless card / usb adapter in the PC you wish to make wireless.

      The USB adapter Sky sell at 20.00 is good and known to work well, also Sky would support it if you have problems. (its very easy to setup)

      Once you decide which way you are going ask on here and we will help you.
