    I intend to go for a new ADSL connection. I d like to access this internet
    connection thro my wireless laptop running XP Pro. What is the equipment I
    need to connect to the ADSL line? I understnad that what i need a Wireless
    ADSL modem router. Am I right? Is there a better solution for this?

    Make it simple.
    You have two choices:
    1) a computer with a wireless card you could set up (you know $500 minimum)
    and would connect directly to the dsl modem.
    2) a wireless router would connect to the dsl modem, have everything set
    up... 30min it's simple. Find a linksys or netgear wireless router... don't
    buy a speed booster or somthing and spend an extra $20 because the slowest
    wireless connection is way faster than adsl itself, so it's not necesary.
    and it's a waste of $$$
    if that link doesnt work, look up "Linksys 802.11g Wireless Router" or
    WRT54G for $50.. (according to BB's website) it's an excellent deal!

    and i guarentee when you buy the dsl their free tech support will help you
    set it up... just read the instructions... I dont want to see you back on
    here after you buy it ;-) j/k I'd be glad to give any more support you'd
