If all you're looking for is wireless internet within your home, then you can simply buy a wireless router off the shelf from Best Buy. However, a wireless router will only provide a range of a couple hundred feet, perhaps a couple of hundred yards. Essentially, it only provides internet access at a single fixed location. I'm getting the impression you're looking for something more.

If you're looking to have internet access wherever you go, no matter how far from home, you're going to need a subscription to wireless internet from a cellular provider such as AT&T or Sprint. They sell both internet access as well as the cards used to connect to the network, so check out their websites to explore your options.

Try contacting the consumer affairs office or Office of fair trading for assistance.
You could sell the router on EBay but you may not get the full price that you paid for the router.

Yes, you cannot watch TV without one! They are easy to set up and produce both digital and analog. some of the more expensive ones even allow HDMI. cost anywhere from $50-$300

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP


First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Reconnecting D-Link Router


well if I miss my guess, dsl has to go from the modem to an uplink on the router, cable gets plugged directy, look for a plug on the back called uplink, you can also reset the router to factory by getting a paper clip and inserting it inot the little hole in the front and press in for a few seconds, you shold see it reset by the lights

Wireless connection keeps falling


It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal. Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen. Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card. If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.
