Anyone know where I can get a cheap wireless router? Nothing fancy and high spec. Just something BASIC to enable me to share my broadband with phone and 1 or 2 PC's around the house. Please do include prices if possible and yes I have checked classifieds already. Want more options / sources.

Thank you

a router is expensive for what you want to achieve.

you can buy a wireless access point and share your connection with your devices. Wireless Access Points are cheaper than Routers. What type of broadband do you have? Usually most modern adsl & wimax modems come with embedded wifi capabilities thus you might not need to spend some more in the event your equipment onsite already has the wifi functionality.


Check with Creative Solutions or any other IT companies in your area.

thanks man. i'm using an airmax outdoor wimax cpe; doesn't come with the embedded wifi function like the indoor unit i previously had. currently am connected hard wired to the modem via ethernet. will definitely check them out.cheers
