    Your laptop probably has WiFi so you could turn that into a WiFi hotspot. Even if it doesn't you could purchase a USB WiFi dongle and establish the hotspot via that.

    But, of course, a WiFi router would work just fine.......

    Is your existing router your broadband connection too? (I'm assuming, if it is, you'd need both WiFi and ADSL functionality).

    I can't claim to be knowledgeable about the pros and cons of different wireless routers. I have a Linksys WAG54GS and it works just fine - but I'm sure other users will have some comments on Belkin and other makes.

    Finished up with a Netgear DN1000 150N
    Had a bit of trouble setting up, so rang my service provider (Karoo) the Tech bloke put me right, found out the wizard was misleading.
    Anyway it was nice to see my iPad and iPhone recognised my Home network straight away, put the password in Bingo.

    Relief.!!!!!
