I have a two-bedroom apartment with a desktop and a laptop. I want to connect the desktop to a wireless router with an Ethernet cable (have no wireless card) and have wireless access in my living room for my laptop. I want to just buy the cheapest wireless router I can buy on eBay. Is there any reason to spend more and not buy a cheap 802.11b router to use in this situation?
