I have a BT broadband at home and am connected to my computer through a USB port. I have recently bought Netgear Wireless Router (WMB521) and PC card to get my laptop connected wireless.

The Wireless router provides only telehone line connectivity and not a USB port connectivity. The store tells me that there is no solution and I need to buy a modem + router togather.

Do I need to buy a new Modem with router and all the Netgear that I have bought is a waste. I understand this a problem lot of people are facing who have bought cheaper hardware form US.

Please help

You should be able to set up bridging on a PC that can turn the USB signal into Ethernet for the router.
