    Go to OfficeMax and buy the one I got for $50. It is a D-Link and the model number is WBR-2310.



    Mars,







    Is this the one?
    what do you think?
    Is it okay to go with this ebay sale?
    I've always had good luck with ebay, and looks to be a complete package.








    One thing for sure, I'll go with this model
    since it's what your used to.....

    Another good reason to get a router, is that if you hook up a second computer to your internet modem, your internet providor may charge you for two separate connections (Some do, some don't)
    Some background info about internet, some you may know, some you may not:
    Every computer has a unique IP Address.
    The IP address is a series of numbers that identifies your particular connections.
    If you have a wireless connection and a wired connection, you will have two IP Addresses.
    If you plug two separate computers into the same modem, your internet providor will see you have hooked up two separate connections, and may bill you as such.
    What a router does is it creates ONE IP Address for itself.
    You can hook literally hundreds of computers into a router, but your internet providor will only see 1 IP Address.
    Also, a router often has built in security protection, which will help protect you from being attacked by viruses/hackers, etc.


    When looking for a router, make sure it is actually a router, and not a hub (they can look similar)
    a hub will allow you to connect multiple computers to one connection, but doesn't have the security features of a router.
    Getting a wireless router is better still, as you will get the freedom of being able to take your laptop with you wherever you want (yes, even when your creating a story for the taking a dump thread)
    but make sure you read the manual and protect your wireless connection or other people will be able to "borrow" your wireless signal.
    If you can't figure out how to encrypt your wireless signal, just ask, i'm sure there are many people on this board who have done it before.

    Yes that is it and a nice price. I should of went on Ebay but I am a "want it now" idiot.
    I have a D-Link wireless router as well (it came with the Verizon FiOS setup) and it works great...you can use most any type of wireless card (or laptop with a built-in card) with the D-Link.
    The ONLY drawback with using wireless is that the download speed is a bit slower than wired (but the router has extra ports if you want to go wired vs. wireless).
    Nice that you are gonna help Ned out, mars.

    Re: NordicNed's, Help me with Laptop thread...

    for the most part, I would say that the difference in speed with wireless vs. wired, is only significant if you paid for a fast internet connection.
    for example, the ISP i use, which is Shaw (canadian company)
    offers a lite package which give you 256 kbps download speed (hardly worth it), a 5mbps, 10 mbps, and a
    25mbps,
    download speed, but the norm is usually from 256 kbps to 10 mbps.
    Wireless routers will usually have a 52 mbps speed, so for basic home use, wireless would be completely acceptable and pleanty fast.
    (unless of course Ned is busy downloading those full length porn movies)
