i have just brought a belkin adsl modem with wireless g router and a network card for my laptop thinking i have all that is required to go wireless, but it seems that i need a network card in my desktop to connect the yellow rj45 cable that came with the router is this correct, i thought i could just swap my present modem with the new and all would be o.k but seems not. Please help.

Most desktops come with a lan port, are you sure yours doesn't? It should look like click here

no i dont think so as i cant see one, my motherboard is a jetway v266dm approx 2.5 years old. does this mean if a do not have one i will have to buy a network card ?.

Yes you will, they can be had for less than a tenner if you shop around. You'll have to make sure you have a spare pci slot. Belarc advisor should be able to help you out there click here

The jetway site states you do have a lan port, are you sure?
