I want to change from modem to wireless!?

Hi All,
I got the ADSL modem when I joined here, as I had an old wireless router from a friend, but hence, they dont get on with each other!!! Can I still buy the wireless kit from here? at a small fee, I cant remember how much it was before when I originally signed up, also I only have a wifi Laptop (SONY VAIO) so I just need to plug my modem via USB in to a wireless router, then allow Laptop and Router to speak to each other, is this possible?!
Thanks
Jj

I dont think that arrangement would work as adsl usb modems dont hold your user id and password as routers do.Check on qtds.com for wireless adsl modem routers.Also remember to set up security or everybody and their granny will be using your broadband connection.

You would need to buy a wireless ADSL modem/router and a wireless USB adapter. You can get these as a combo from some retailers.
