Usually the ISP will rent you a modem, unless you can provide one that is compatible with the service. I don't think I have ever seen one that provides wireless. These days wireless routers are relatively cheap. I paid $20 for mine. Just monitor places like tigerdirect.com an They will eventually get a bargain. If your impatient the D-LINK DI-524 sells for around $50. Other MFG's also have routers in this price range.pehbond said:can i set up a broadband connection wirlessly without a main pc so it should go like this.
adsl line connects to the modem in the wifi router then use a laptop to wirlessly connect to the router. the trouble is that most internet broadband suppliers install the modem that comes with the service. how can i get past this and allow them to use the internet service without using the modem provided. this is a tough one as when you install the service on a pc it requires a phisical connection.
thanks for any help
here is a little diagram what i want
