I bought one of these about 7 years ago so I could stop having to plug in a cable to my laptop to get on the internet. It took a while to set-up, but it is all done by an on-line guide that is easy to follow. You also have a way of getting into the set-up of it to correct any problems with your internet service provider even if you are not able to access the internet (but you will need help from your ISP to change any settings).
It is small enough to store on a windowsill, which is where ours is, but you don't have to have it near a window for it to work. It has a very wide range, as ours is downstairs and we can use it upstairs or in our conversatory.
We are really pleased that even after 7 years, it is still working very well with no problems - all the problems have always been through the fault of the ISP, not the router.
Very affordable as well, bought ours from PC World for about £30.
The DIR-300 Wireless G Router connects to any modem or ISP box to provide Internet access for computers and other network equipment. Based on 802.11g Wi-Fi technology, it is an entry-level device ideal for a light usage of the network.
Setting the router up is easy even for non-technically minded people, with D-Link Click'n Connect: run directly from the product CD-ROM, this wizard takes you through an interactive step-by-step guide that will get you on-line in a matter of minutes.
A powerful dual firewall (SPI and NAT) prevents Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and attempts to breach your network from the Internet. You can also define a list of allowed sites to restrict web access during certain periods.
With Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), you do not have to memorize complicated passwords and key them in several times. Just press the button on the side of the router, then click from within your adapter's utility software to make the pair automatically generate the necessary wireless network name (SSID) and encryption keys.
