I just got an ibook with an airport card. I also have a pc that uses ethernet. Can i buy a wireless router that i can use with the airport card, and still plug an ethernet cable into my pc from the same router? Also, which routers work with my airport card (not the apple ones)?

rhodest,

I'm too lazy to check, but make sure your DSL modem has an ethernet port. Some DSL modems have USB connections.
