Basically, I have a new Desktop computer and a funky new Laptop (with built in wireless PCMIA card thingy).
I wanted a wireless modem so I can connect my laptop to the internet in my little abode and the little USB adaptor should get my desktop PC linked up.
Here's where I get confused - I imagined having this little modem/router thing next to a phone point somewhere in my apartment (which isn't very big) and my PC and laptop could connect whereever they are in my flat. However, from the pics on the side of the box and the installation instructions, is it right that it has to be PHYSICALLY connected to my PC? ie to the PC's ethernet card? If so, that's a litle disappointing - there is no phone point in my 'study' and I would have to trail a wire in from the nearest point which counters the whole wireless benefit (it would also move the wireless modem away from the lounge (which is probaby where I would connect with my laptop )
