You just got your high speed modem (it could be cable, DSL, fiber optics . . .
something nifty), and you've got your computers, and you've got your wireless
interface cards. Now you need the final element: the router.
With four wired ports and the wireless connection, you're ready to take on the
Internet and all it has to offer. Or maybe you just need a local network off the
'Net for your small office. Maybe you'll hook your desktop up by cable, and
