What modem if any do I need?

I have recently purchased a laptop with a wireless card and also have a desk top with a dial up modem. I would like a wireless network and have cable free access to the internet. Is there a good Plus Net modem offer or should I purchase my own?

Our exchange goes live on 24 November, is it likely I can be connected on the first day? Do i need to buy anything else other than a modem?

If I am not downloading music or video, surfing for a couple of hours per night while listening to on-line radio is 1GB per month download limit enough?

Any help appreciated.

Kind regards

Kevin

Plusnet don't do a wireless router, you will have to buy your own.

I would recommend the Netgear DG834G or Linksys WAG54. You can see reviews of both (and a few others) on ADSL guide Reviews.

Wireless router

If I purchase my own wireless router, I take it I wouldn't need any software from Plusnet?

Will I need to buy anything else for my desktop pc?

Thanks again

No your router should come with any software it needs. You need non for your connection to PlusNet. Smiley
