    I use a 2m CAT6 flat cable when I wire up my laptop to the modem/router, although my LAN is just Fast Ethernet (10/100).
    Isn't any adapter available to which i can connect my ISP's ethernet male and in its output I can connect two ethernet patch cables, one to the wifi router's WAN, and one to a pc (like Y network)

    I've never heard of any but the WAN port is the input and the LAN port is the output, but where a router doesn't have a WAN port, then one of the LAN ports can be used for the input.

    I don't think I'd choose either of those if I had a Gigabit card fitted in a computer - which are normally fitted into desktops.

    Have a Google for some of the cheaper models from http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop...yID=694&Sort=3 in your own country as these are subject to UK VAT charges and may be cheaper from a more local source - not forgetting to check official and customer reviews.

    Sudo15, nice explanations
    Darpab1041, having more than one WAN could be beneficial
    If you work wired with a desktop computer you have another WAN port for the laptop just in case you need to check it out for connectivity issues
