Re: Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband
You could use any brand wireless router with your broadband service for a wifi signal for your laptop or any wireless internet to any device that is compatible for it. You first need to make sure your laptop has built in wireless or if it needs an adapter(ex. Wireless notebook adapter, USB Adapter). and if its built in then all you would need to buy is a wireless router(Linksys has a really nice and user friendly setup. Model:WRT54G).

Go fix your portting settings in your router. Now do you want to gain access the laptop by loggin into it? If so, go to VNC.com and download one of them. (Virtual Network Computer) You will have to install VNC on both computers. Then use VNC viewer to witre the ip of your laptop. Then press enter, you should gain access to your laptop wirelessly.
But you have to do portforwarding in the router and other small stuffs to make ths work.
Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.
Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?
Packard Bell seems to have a decent support site here:
This article may help, but need your model number to go any further.
If its just a router and not a modem router, go into the routers settings and make sure DHCP is enabled to give each pc an automatic IP address and ensure wireless is enabled if using wireless adapters.
Next go to the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP select properties and ensure obtain IP address automatically is ticked.
You must also set up using the XP network wizard and ensure file and printer sharing is set up through both pc's.
