you can get wireless ADSL gateways with wireless cards bundled. Router wise, I have only used NetGear DG814, which has given me no end of hassle with the 4.8 firmware but which runs quite stable at home with the 4.6 so I am really not sure how to rate it. It comes with the 4.4 firmware on it to start with, I really dont recommend upgrading to 4.8 though
The DG834 has a pretty strong firewall built into it, and DoS and stuff like that. They are pretty easy to setup and get working though.

You'll need an:

RF router B (cheaper) or G (faster) class will work since your internet is only 1.5mbps (I'm with SBC too).

Then the same type (B or G) RF NIC card for each PC. Note the G is usually backward compatible to B.

Remember to turn on the security option to encrypt your RF or anyone can link into your network.

Do a search in here for "wireless network" and you should find who has the best ones these days. It changes as the new models come out.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
