    I have a cable connection and my modem has one ethernet port and one usb and another for the power. My etherenet cable is plugged into the port on my modem on the one on my computer. What type of router should i purchase (adsl or cable?) and how do i set it up?

    It will not work if you upload it like this, this link is pointing me to your F:/ Drive which I do not have access to. If you want to email it to me, tell me and I will PM you my email.

    In order to put your own images onto the forums go to
    http://imageshack.us

    upload the file, and take the last link "direct link to image" and paste that here.

    Upload thepicture to imageshack, then it'll give you loads of links underneath when it's done. Copy the bottom one and put it here.

    A regular wireless router will work, one such as the D-Link DBR-2310

    the modem goes to the router and the router goes to the computer, if you have a wired computer by the modem. Don't worry, the WBR-2310 comes with very detailed directions on how to set it up. I own this one and I love it.

    Keep the existing modem, and use a WAN port on a router to establish a connection. The Linksys WRT54GL is a good router.

    I've no idea, I would never need to use parental control, not for anything other than practical jokes on my housemates anyway!
