    My brother has (for his AT&T DSL) a wireless gateway 2Wire model 2701HG-B, which "does not support HomePNA nor USB." Does the latter mean that the gateway does not connect to the main computer by USB port, or that the peripheral adaptor has to be PCI, and not USB? It would seem to me that the peripheral shouldn't care.

    You can connect multiple computers to your wireless gateway via Ethernet or with Wireless Network Adapters*.

    Not USB

    As long as the end result is either 802.11b/g or a standard Ethernet connection, it doesn't matter how the adapter is connected to the client system.
