Re: wireless internet for my laptop
NO! No wanadoo gear. Its all cheap crap, like the touch modems.
I got wanadoo and within a week, i threw out the usb modem and got a proper always connected one, 4 port ethernet jacks etc. I then got a Link sys kit for around £90 from ebuyer.com
I suggest you do this. You get a 4 port wired router, modem, firewall + wireless adapter via usb. Works very well. Some kits come with the laptop cards too.
