    For what you are trying to do you should probably get a wireless router. The router itself is not completly wireless, it should have ports on it just like a reguar router, along with antenna's to broadcast the wireless signal.

    Netgear make good wireless routers. Linksys normally make good routers but I heard they had problems with the wireless (dunno if it's true). Try and get the same brand wireless card as the router if you can.
