    I'm planning on buying a router to share my dsl connection. I've been thinking on getting a wireless since I won't have to mess with cables..but at the same time, I dont know if wireless will be a problem if one pc is upstairs and the other downstars. I have never used a wireless so I don't know their typical range. Another thing is..will I need a 11mb or 54mb? We won't be doing many transferring of files between computers..we're just going to share the dsl connection.

    If anyone has experience using a particular wireless router, post what's good and what to stay away from. I'm currently considering the Netgear MR814NA.

    Well, wireless is not as secured as wired, but if you are going wireless, i would suggest 8011g wireless.

    How far distance wise are the two computers going to be? If in the same room, then go with wired. If not go with wireless, and go with the .11g
