    You can get a wired router for something like 9.99 - 29.99 after rebate.

    The 100% of the time protection you get from problems on the Internet is worth the expense. Shared printing, shared Internet without the main machine having to be up and file transfers between machines is great also.

    Magazines I read and Programs I watch suggest getting a router even if you only have one computer (security discussed above is the reason).

    I have routers, switches, a wireless access point and VOIP phone service. The money I save on phone service helps cover the cost of my broadband connection.

    Get the router you won't be sorry.
