Have you got a wireless card in your PC? What router did you buy? I have the Linksys one which is a gateway. Your other option is to get something like a web n walk which is a dongle that plugs into any pc and provides internet, no phoneline/modem/wireless card needed.
You have to plug in a yellow cable to start with to get the wireless network set up, I guess that's what you mean? BIL did ours, but I think as we had a laptop and a desktop, we used the laptop to set up the wifi router using the yellow cable, then that could be unplugged, then we connected the desktop wirelessly once we had a network and password. I guess if you only have a desktop, you would need to hoik it down to the phone socket to set it up, then move it all back where it was.
I might be wrong, I'm sure someone on here can help you better!
You don't plug a "wireless router" into a phone socket, that's not what they're for.
A "wireless router" shares an already existing network connection wirelessly, that sounds like the sort of thing the slipperthief has got from Argos.
Slipperthief how do you usually connect to the internet? Do you have a broadband account or do you have a dial up connection?
If it's a dial up connection then a wireless router won't do the trick, you need a computer at the end of the phone line (as far as I know, though there's probably some gadget out there to do the trick).
If you have a broadband connection then you'll already have an ASDL Modem or a Cable Modem if you use someone like Virgin Cable.
Many ADSL Modem's already include a Wireless Router and are labelled as something like an "ASDL Wireless Router".
If you already have another ASDL Modem then the Wireless Router might be able to plug straight into it and share that connection wirelessly.
Is any of this making any sense?
Can you answer the questions and then I'm sure someone can get you rolling along.
