I'm finally getting broadbanded up at home - we need four people to be able to hook up without getting to see each others' private mail, pornography etc. Anybody know what's a decent and extremely cheap bit of kit?

Ask your brother! He seems to know all that sort of stuff!

Why don't you want to see each others pornography? Are there some very specific tastes catered for? :shock:

or get a broadband provider to provide you with a free wireless router. Orange's version caters for up to 5 wireless and one wired.

 

 

ISP provided Routers/Modems are often poorer quality and poor on performance. A certain major Telecommunications Companies offerings are just total cack, if i come across any at clients or new clients, the first recommendation is to get rid ASAP. They are made from the cheapest, nasty parts around.

 

Sky TV saw the light with this approach and started using a modified Netgear DG834 as there standard offering.

Thanks for the advice guys. To clarify, I now have a wireless sendy outy thingy that Tiscali gave me, but I don't have a wotsit on my PC that picks it up, it's that that I need.

 

I think.

You need one of these:- "Dongle"

A wireless receiver is a cleaner way of putting it...

 

 

No Maddog is quite right in calling it a Dongle, that is it's correct name.

That looks like the sort of thing. £20 about the price is it, or can I get cheaper without endangering the quality of my grot broadband experience?

 

 

Circa £20 is about right. You can get cheaper but I wouldn't recommend any of the cheaper unbranded tat on the market.

 

I have used them in the past and had nothing but trouble with them.
