Hello im new on these forums..

Exisiting Kit
1 Mb NTL Broadband Cable modem. The USB port of the cable modem is connected to my pc. I have purchased a centrino laptop and a netgear wireless router.

Do i connect the router to the ethernet port of the modem and install through my pc? Can i connect router to modem as well as keeping the existing modem-pc connection

Usual way to set things up is to connect the wireless router to the PC with ethernet cable and connect the modem to the router's internet (WAN) port (no need for direct USB connection between modem and PC).

Then you can get an ethernet PCI card click here and install it or a USB to ethernet adapter which you can connect to a USB port on your computer click here
