Default Wireless Router Question for PS2 Network Adapter

sponsored links

I have a PS2 with a network adapter that I want to hook up to my computer (broadband) cable modem. It would be nice to use a wireless
router to do the hook up. My cable modem is a Motorola Surfboard SB5100.
I want to be able to use the PS2 for online gaming when my computer is off. What specifications should the router have to be used with the PS2 network adapter?

hey while we're on the topic of wireless, would wireless B work ok at about 30 feet in another room seperated by walls and so forth? How is it for interferance and static, I was reading how the G protocol's supposed ot improve on B afterall..

what sort of price should I look for with one of those linksys b router and adapters? I want to get it for DSL...
