I need to connect my PC to my cable outlet more safely than it is now. The
closest cable outlet is accross a short hall from the room were my computer
is located(AMD 1Ghz, XP Pro, Kerio 4.0, 512 MB, 160GB total disk space). The
cable is stretched across the hall, covered with a throw rug. In the past
I've found someone to fishhoo the cable under/around/thru/over/behind
carpet, molding and walls. Finding someone with the tools and the skill to
do this well is a problem.

Using a wireless router seems like the best solution to me. I've located a
SOYO 802.11g wireless router, and a netgear adapter that I can afford.

Can someone point to a page of instructions on setting this up. I'm new to
wireless, but skilled with computers & software. A link on how to's for
security and firewall recommendations would also be appreciated.

Thanks for Any Help.

Brian
