    Default Anyone recommend a good wireless router?

    I'm finally getting broadband . I usually connect to the internet via a works connection but its limiting as they block quite a lot. So as I'm now getting broadband, was wondering what good wireless gear there is out there, suitable for Virgin Media broadband? They only give you a normal cable modem from Virgin when you sign up . What I would like is to have the capability to connect up to 2 or 3 PC onto the connection wirelessly (prob not at the same time though). Also any cheap internet sites to buy this gear from?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Cheers.

    I've been using a Belkin wireles router for a couple of years now and had no problems. What attracted me was their lifetime guarantee and free technical support (no that i've had to use any cause the product is so good and straightforward to set up )

    Do you have to buy the thing that plugs into your PC seperate? Or does it come with the router?

    Here's a basic Belkin one, £29.99, does the job. I guess you only need to start paying more if you want extended range.
