Hi Guys
wanting to setup a wireless network in my home and really am confused with all the computer jargon.
I have been reading in the forums and wondered could someone advise me on the proper hardware I need to to connect,and if my system is compatilable,i know i need a router,but which kind.
Had a look at a "Linksy WRT54GS" and that seems to be able to cover everything,though i am only going on the recommendations of what i have read in the forums.
I have just bought a new LAPTOP and am almost certain it is set up for wireless but then who am i,just a Newbie.
Would really appreciate any help as i am trying to get this set up for Xmas,you guessed,it's a Xmas pressie.

Sorry,i forgot to mention that i connect to the internet through "BT Broadband Speedtouch 330 ADSL Modem USB.

My Desktop.

System:XP Pro SP2
AMD Sempron Processor 2800+
Ver:x86 Family 15 Model 44 Stepping 2
80G HD
512 MB RAM
Network Card:WAN (PPP/SLIP)Interface

Laptop:Toshiba Satellite Pro L10
Windows XP Pro
Pentium M Centrino
40GB HDr
Wireless Network 802.11b/g
