    Converting from a desktop with cable to a new laptop (wireless) since moving to small apt. from a house and no desk space. Cable internet available. Should I invest in a router just for the laptop (so I can move it around in apt)? Is all I ahve to dois connect cable modem to router? Is there a best router for small space use?
    I know I could always hope to piggyback on someone else's unsecured connection, but that's risky.

    I use my wireless Verizon usb on the laptop. It's nowhere near as fast as cable/DSL but it's effective internet access.

    Any recent wireless router willl be fine. Just make sure you use WPA2 and a good 63 bit key.

    cheers, Paul
