router+modem in local network sharing interne

Specs: Windows XP
I've got phone line and internet access in 2 rooms at home (bedroom and living-room).
In my bedroom there is a Dekstop which is cable connected to an ethernet adsl modem (Desktop doesn't provide wireless card).
In my living-room I'd like to add a wireless router to work with my laptop.

Is that possible ? can I use both modem and router adsl to share the same broadband connection ?

Thanks in advance

Yes it is. You just hook a router into the ehternet port of your modem and hook your computer into the router.

What is the model of your DSL modem? Some models like 2Wire modems already have wireless routers built in.

It's an old DSL ethernet modem called
SpeedWeb Ethernet

I'm using it for ages and I'm quite sure there isn't a wireless router built in

If I hook the router into my modem then I have to install the router in my bedroom and will be a long range wireless connection because the living-room is 30 feet far away from my bedroom (yes it's a big house !).
Cannot I use router in the living-room, modem in my bedroom and share broadband connection from these 2 devices ?

I have a Netgear wireless router. It's been working fine for about 4 or 5 years. I'm having and issue with my laptop. Everyday I have to recycle the power on the router in order for my laptop to find it.
Anything suggestions?
