I'm looking to switch from using a USB modem (that came free when I first moved to ADSL) for connecting to the Internet, to an ADSL modem and router combination. I don't want to spend a fortune and was thinking of getting a Netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Firewall Router with 4-port 10/100 switch, coupled with a Netgear WG111 Wireless 54Mbps USB 2.0 Adapter . Is this modem/router and adapter any good ? Is it possible to completely disable the wireless part of it for security reasons, and just use it in a wired configuration (ie. connecting to it using ethernet cable) ? I'm a novice when it comes to using routers (in both wired and wireless forms), so what are the main points I need to know for running it safely (ie. so no-one can hack into my machine or hack into my wireless connection) ? According to someone on Amazon, you need to "limit the computers that could talk to it via their MAC addresses and setting up 128 bit WEP encryption)". Anything else I need to do ?
