    So I want the new apartment to be set up with wireless, except I know absolutely nothing about it

    I have a wireless card in my laptop, and that's all I know- I'll need a card for the other laptop, as well as a router? and anything else?

    Can you guys recommend shit, tell me what i need etc?

    Yeah, wireless card for the other lappy, and a wireless router.

    Once it's all plugged in, just follow the instructions.

    It should be.

    Plug in Wireless Router > boot lappy with wireless card > configure router to connect to broadband service > install card in other lappy.

    If you're dumb and need help, let me know. I did this just the other day for a client.

    As far as recomending a router i would go with Linksys if you have the money. I would also get a router that 802.11g because that is backwards compatable with 802.11a wireless cards. Good luck.

    also keep in mind if you have a 2.4Ghz wireless phone keep the base station away from the wireless router, a buddy of mine was having all sorts of issues and the 2.4Ghz phone was the culprit
