Sherwood1947, I would like to get a laptop and router so I could play games in other rooms of my house. I have a desktop Hp Pavilion 8665C with Windows 98Se. Pentium III 600MHz, 30.0 GB, 128MB, and CD-RW. The laptops I see have XP and I don't understand to much about what I have to do , too get this router and laptop to work or even what I need. Any help will be welcome, but I am still having problems with this web-site to know which buttons to push to get where I need to go to answer or post messages. Thank you for your time.
