Wireless ADSL Modem/Router for about £50+ and a
Wireless Network Card for about £20+?


You could just about get the D-Link T904 (?) kit from PC World for that
money.
Not very high spec but works well.
May I suggest you go for the one with GWL 122 WiFi adapter ?
It comes with over a meter of USB cable, which makes it much easier to
position for best signal,
often about 5' high is best. Yet, the actual USB dongle is small enough to
carry around and put in a laptop.
Best of all it works better then any other WiFi adaptor I had tried.
Regards,
Martin

If you want VoIP capability built in as well, the AVM Fritz!Box Fon WLAN
is worth a look - www.avm.de/en
