Tried a search and i did'nt find so im asking. I want to add another computer to my internet. One computer runs win xp, the other is win 95. I have AT&T DSL with 5100 speedstream modem. Can anyone recomend the best router for this? Also is wireless the way to go or is hardwire better?. One computer is in the basement so im wondering if the wireless would work from upstairs to downstairs. Thanks

Which system has 95 on it? Wireless will not work with 95 at all.
In the beginning there was the command line.

The computer i want to add is Windows 95. So a hardwired router is the only way to go?

Since 95 won't work wirelessly, the router will have to be hardwired to it - but the XP computer can connect wired with a NIC card, or wirelessly with a wireless adapter. Most wireless routers also have wired connections in the back.
