Finally we got broadband this week at home! I attached a WGR614 wireless router, the cheapest 802.11g external router around (as opposed to a PCI card router). It's the third one I've bought, I think the first one I paid $205 at Hardly Normal after pointing out that their $269 sticker price was being beaten by some highly dodgy Edward St outlet i-central. Now it's $69 at Umart.

It was difficult to get iChat working with this WGR614 (v6) but this page has all the instructions. More seriously I looked at the router status page this morning and someone in our building was leeching off the connection!! I immediately did some research on whether WEP or WPA is better and put a WPA password on it.
