Can anyone reccomend an easy to setup Cable N Router suitable for Win7?

Computers connect to a router using TCP/IP protocol and, as the router isn't installed either as software or as hardware, the operating system is immaterial.

Pick a wireless 802.11n "Cable/DSL Router" from one of the mainstream suppliers - Belkin, Netgear, D-Link, Linksys - and make sure the Windows 7 PC has a compatible 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter installed.

mgmcc Thanks for your reply, could you explain to me your last sentence (make sure the Windows 7 PC has a compatible 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter installed) I'm not sure what you mean?

mgmcc or anyone else. Been thinking about my last post. Surely if Im linking the router to my Win7 PC, I don't need to attach a compatible 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter to this PC, they are only required on remote computers I think?
Please advise?

If your computer and router are in close proximity then you'd just connect using a straight through Ethernet cable, no wireless adapter is necessary.

Thanks Tech Guy, that's what I thought. I've ordered NetgearWNR854T RangeMax Next Wireless-N cable router. I hope setting up is easy, Virginmedia is my ISP.
