I have Comcast cable. The Motorola Surfboard modem is connected to my desktop via Ethernet cable. I occasionally have to work with friend's laptops, and need to connect to the Web wirelessly, so am considering getting a wireless router. Trouble is, I can't find much info on the Web that tells me what I need, and prices go from $25 to $1200. I figure I only need something very simple, since I have no home network or multiple computers throughout the house.

So, can anyone recommend a good and relatively inexpensive router? Review in PC World liked the Belkin N, but have no idea if that's suitable or overkill or what.

I use this at home to connect my work laptop:

Works well, and it's a good price.
Sorry for the delay in responding; busy week. I check out the Linksys WRT110. User ratings are not all that good. Only 38% give it a 5, while 33% say it's no good. So I'm going to go to some brick and mortor stores to look and "feel" stuff there and ask some questions. Will report to the thread what I decide.

There may be some routers that come with wireless cards, but I don't know of any. You would need to buy your wireless card for your machine separately.
