I just purchased a Dell 1721 laptop (Vista) computer to replace my old desktop. I have Roadrunner internet. The new laptop has a wireless N card in it. Would like to hear suggestions on what router I should purchase (brand, type). Also, since I plan on doing away with the old desktop, I assume I can just connect the new router to the current modem and use the laptop throughout the house. I don't plan on doing any networking or use a wireless printer for now. Also wondering if I need to install software that will come with the new router. Thanks, Ken

"I assume I can just connect the new router to the current modem"

That's an excellent assumption if the modem has an ethernet port; terrible assumption if the modem has only a USB connection.

To use a router you need no software other than the operating system you already have.
