I'm about to purchase a laptop and will be looking to set up a home network in order to use it with the internet I have set up with my desktop. I'm looking to do this via Netgear Powerline Ethernet. I'm completely new to this type of thing, so I'm hoping someone knowledgeable here could see if I'm on the right track. I'm currently connected to the internet on a DSL connection. I have a DSL modem (Westell 6100 if that's relevant) with a phone cord for my internet access running to it from the wall, as well as an ethernet cable running from the modem to my computer. I'm under the understanding I must purchase a router. Is this correct? If so, once I have the router and Netgear Powerline adapter set, should the setup go something like this?: 1. Turn off power to my DSL modem. 2. Remove the ethernet cable from the modem. 3. Plug the ethernet cable I removed from the modem into one of the ports on the router, leaving the other end in my computer. 4. Plug a second ethernet cable into my DSL modem and then into my router. Would this sound like the proper way to set up a router? Now for the Netgear itself: 1. Plug one of the adapters into the wall. 2. Connect an ethernet cable from the adapter to the router. 3. Plug in the second adapter into the wall in the room where my laptop is. 4. Connect another ethernet cable from the adapter to the laptop. Does this make sense? Any help or advice is appreciated. If you have any suggestions for a good, cheap router I'd be interested. Wired or wireless.
