I use a Belkin router with built in ADSL modem. This connects to my desktop via a normal networking cable. My laptop is fitted with a wireless network card. My printer and scanner are connected to the desktop via normal USB connections and the laptop accesses the printer and scanner via the wirelss connection to the router then down the cable. In my view it is better to have one computer hard wired to the router which saves the additional cost and potential problems of two computers with wireless connections. As they say "it works for me"
