Wait on the router till you all get setup and then see what you need in it.

Re: I need a lap top

I've got a single 802.11g Neatgear access point in my house. I get good signal from every room. Unless you have an enormous house, you're going to be good with one router. You can't have multiple routers, but you could have one wireless router and then a handful of access points. Every time you booted up the laptop, you'd have to pick the access point with the best signal. If you wandered from one end of the house to the other, you'd have to disconnect from one access point and conncet to another. If you have signal issues, you can get a high gain antenna for your router. That's a much better solution than multiple access points.

Re: I need a lap top

that sounds like to much of a hassle. I'll look into the high gain antena. My house is 2 stories 4 bedrooms, a bit over 2000 sq feet. not huge but I don't know the range of these things.

You should be fine. I'm in a two story 3 bed, 1800sq.ft. and it works fine. It did fine in my parents' house too, and theirs is a good bit bigger than mine. I don't even center my access point in the house, like you're supposed to.

Re: I need a lap top

My linksys router picks up at about a 50 yard range or so. I can go across the street to my friend's apartment and still pick up my internet...

And make sure, when it comes time, to atleast have a WEP key on it. You don't want people outside your house feeding off your internet.

WPA-PSK, 65 character random generated key, and don't broadcast your SSID.

Definitely enable security for your wireless unless you want to provide for the neighbors.

You'll be fine with one router if you don't get a crappy one, and it doesn't look like you're going to.
