    I currently have DSL at my home, but have seen several Wireless Broadband routers that have just come on the market. Can I use my existing DSL connection with these new routers and have wireless connecitivity from multiple home computers (mainly laptops).

    You would also have to purchase wireless network cards for each computer.

    And I'd recommend the Linksys wireless router model# <a href=http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=22&prid=173> BEFW11S4</a>. And you'd also need the cards, model# <a href=http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?prid=186&grid=22>WPC11</a> for each laptop. I've seen a few installations using those routers, they work great and are very easy to setup using DHCP. If you live in the States, CompUSA sells both the routers and the cards.
