Ok i have a question.... I am living in the dorms and we dont use any modems in here. I have a roomate and i wanted to get a router to allow us to have internet connection anywhere in the room and to allow other people to use it. I can use the router without using the modem right. I think what i will have to do is connect the router to the ethernet line, install the software onto my laptop nad that should be it right.

I am trying to get a Belkin F5D7230-4 Wireless-G 54Mbps Broadband Router.

I think it shuold work, but i wanted to make sure before i bought anything

Where he mentions any modem that you plug into, plug into the dorm's ethernet plug you normally do for a wired connection. All other computers will have to have a compatible wireless card installed.
