    Hi, I am in the process of setting up a wireless network within the home and
    just wondered on what Wireless kits are fast, reliable and also value for
    money.

    I'll be connecting up 2x Dell Latitude Laptops and am currently subscribed
    to NTL Broadband.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    got a dlink 624 and 2 wireless g cards for xmas. it has hard wire connects
    and wireless. Set it up in about 30 minutes, the security took about another
    30 minutes. I just run wep 128 bit. Just remember that you set the security
    in the router first, then your laptops. BTW I set the cards up in a Dell
    Inspiron and a IBM t30 one running xp the other w2k.

    Look for some price reductions on 802.11b equipment as manufactures
    introduce newer equipment. I bough my Belkin AP/Router at Staples at
    Thanksgiving for $18 after rebate. I went to Pricewatch.com and got a $15
    (with free shipping) PCMCIA card for my laptop. All works great!

  5. I've got a Netgear WRG614 Wireless Router plugged into a Telewest Cable
    Modem and use a couple of Netgear WG511 PC Cards in an IBM Thinkpad 600 and
    a Dell Latitude C610.

    All of the above was purchased from Amazon. Ordered it online and two days
    later arrived on the doorstep.

    I've had no serious problems with this kit at all, the only niggle is the
    fact that there are odd times when the signal level seems to disappear which
    is a little strange when nothing is being moved. Have upgraded the firmware
    on the Router with the latest 802.11g ratified firmware from Netgears
    website, still hasn't resolved the signal issue though.

    The only thing I can put it down to is signal interference from the analogue
    cordless phones we have in the house.
