I currently have a router wired directly to my computer. My friend is getting rid of his wireless router, and I'm thinking about taking it and replacing my router so that I can use the computer and other laptops freely around the house without being hard wired. Would I just simply disconnect the old router and connect the wireless router and everything will work fine? Or do I still need to contact my DSL company to let them know that I'm changing my router?

Which DSL modem do you use?

Which brand / model & model # router?

You will need to configure the wireless router.

Which version of Windows? XP, Vista, W7? Which version of each; ex Home, Professional.

Which Windows Service Pack?

To answer your question, I don't know. It might be necessary for you to contact your ISP. I haven't used every ISP connecction in my country, let alone the world, so I cannot provide an answer with any certainty. :)
