It is Model WGR101. Has anybody heard of this travel wireless router. My roommate has dsl and I was wondering if I would be able to connect this router to the dsl connection so she can be on her computer and I can be in the other room with my laptop.. will this device work like that? if so I want to get it.. here is the link. Thanks.

Netgear is pretty cool - I'm sure you'd be happy with it. It will do just what you need.

I will second what Oilman said. I have been using a netgear hub for about 5 years. Never had any issues with it. It just works.

another question about this though. if i connect this to her router through the ethernet connection, wont i have to disconnect her computer's connection or is that not the case? i want it so we can both be on the internet.

It depends on how many connections the router or modem has for ethernet cables. Even if it only has one you can use a hub. Simply conect to hub to the router/modem with an ethernet cable and connect the computers to the hub. Most modems or routers will have more than one ethernet port.

I ended up just getting a regular wireless router for it instead of the travel one.. the travel had just 1 ethernet port and I didnt know I could get a hub for it.. oh well maybe i will get that also later on if i start traveling a lot... i dont really need it as of now.. thanks for the responses.
