Do I need any other equipment?

Your internet service provider will normally provide you with the means to connect to the internet through their service – a broadband modem. Often, the modem provided has an inbuilt router, which allows you to share your internet access between several devices, although modems may also be bought separately.

Routers usually have Wi-Fi wireless capability – this allows you to create a simple Wi-Fi network in your home or business. This allows you to share internet access across PCs and Apple Macs – and also such equipment as games stations (e.g. the Nintendo Wii), Wi-Fi enabled Smart Phones (e.g. Apple iPhones) or even Amazon Kindle e-readers.
