    thanks for the link. the 2 computers will be in the same room, so distance is not a priority. also since i already got a modem, a simple wifi router will be suffice.

    but yes i need lan ports for my pc. wifi for lappy.

    Linksys WRT120N Wireless N Home Router Dual Band wifi
    or
    ASUS 150Mbps Wireless N Router RT N10 recommended, if available
    or
    Netgear WGR614-N150 Wireless Router (2-Year ONSITE warrantee)
    or
    Netgear wgr614V9 will be suitable for your needs.

    thx essbebe. i got myself a netgear wgr614. costed 1350 + tax.

    during set up it asked for the pin (availabe at the back of the router) and provided me with a password. is that enough, or i need do more.

    also i could get signals from other networks too (though very poor in quality). i assume those guys are also getting the signal from my side. what are the chances of me getting hacked

    congrats.
    If you have used security key no problem.
    Anyway change it once a month.
    ADD your system MAC address to white list in wifi router.

    Chances of hacking great if you are employed in CIA/KGB/RAW/ISI or a secret agent /politician /filmstar etc !!
