    Buy a wireless CABLE router (make sure it's cable not ADSL - cable routers
    will have a WAN ethernet port for the modem to plug into).

    Then buy two wireless PCMCIA or USB adaptors for the laptops, unless of
    course you are lucky to have inbuilt wireless.

    My recommendations are for either Netgear or Linksys kit. Get the same make
    for both the router and the adaptors since it generally makes life easier.
    If you're just browsing the internet you can opt for the slower/cheaper
    802.11b standard. If you want it faster for sharing files etc, then you can
    go for the 802.11g.

    I've found Ebuyer (ebuyer.com) a useful place to buy above kit.

    for the router.

    for the wireless cards.

    Both are 11b versions (the slower/cheaper one). You can buy 11g equivalents
    if you wish.

    PS. Your 150kbs NTL service is about to / has already been upgraded to 300k
    :eek:)
