I currently have a simple set up for Virgin Net broadband, a modem that connects to my PC by a USB cable and then to the phone socket by a normal cable & filter. I need to get a wireless router to share the coonection with a laptop. An IT support guy I know said to get a network card for my PC connect that via an ethernet cable to a wireless router and plug the phone line DIRECTLY into the router without a modem between the two, I don't even need a router with an internal modem. Then obviously get a wireess card thing for the laptop slot. Doesn't seem right to me I thought you had to have a modem somewhere in the connection but he says it is not necessary in this set up as all a modem does is convert analogue to digital ( i.e. a non broadband dail up )- is this correct ? Any help most welcome.
