I guess that's all I need in order to unplug my laptop and go wifi in my house, correct? My laptop is wifi-ready and the internet company said all I needed was a router. I don't have a huge house (renting) but it's 2 story and I want to be able to take my computer upstairs to my bedroom. difficult child will be here sometime in 8 mos or more but honestly, I'm not going to sweat his internet usage as much since he'll be 16 1/2 yo. I'll be watching any debit or CC though. So is there anything in particular I need to know about purchasing a router? I noticed some are inexpensive and some cost big bucks but the only big difference I see is speed. If I'm used to digital connections and no dial-up, what would be a good speed without splurging for the top of the line?
