|The NB7 ADSL2+ Modem Router-NetComm is a single port device with no wireless capability. Here is the spec for it:|
You need to get a wireless ADSL router.
The kind of router I am talking about has wireless capability and also has the ability to support 4 wired connections.
You main PC would therefore use one of the four wired connections and your laptop would work wirelessly.
Here is an example of such a product:
You should shop round for a good deal. They are not pricey. Key things to look for are:
1. 1 x DSL Port - For your telephone line
2. 4 x LAN ports - For your fixed PC/s
3. 1 x USB port if you want to hang a printer off it so you can use it from any PC. This is not essential but nice to have.
4. Wireless capability is a must - For your Laptop/s.
With wireless capability there are various standards that you should be aware of as they mean a faster or slower speed.
802.11n is the fastest and current standard and therefore these routers tend to be the most expensive of all
802.11g is the one I would recommend for you as it would be cheaper than 802.11n and adequate for your needs. Having said that if you can afford 802.11n then go for that one.
The other standards are older and slower and to be avoided. However for completemness they are 802.11a and 802.11b
In summary you need to get an ADSL2+ 802.11g 4-port wireless router (with or without a USB printer port)
Here is an example on an 802.11g router (with USB):
Here is an example on an 802.11n router (without USB):
Looking at the RRP prices for the above two I think you may be able to get cheaper elsewhere. I have only shown these as they are from the same stable as your current one.
☺ When everything else fails, read the instructions.
