Re: Question about Desktop computer with built in wireless

If you have a DSL Gateway or a cable gateway, then you already have the functionality of a wireless router built into your DSL/Cable modem, so you would not need to buy a wireless router. However, most wireless routers will perform significantly better than whatever your Internet provider gave you and you can use them if you want to, though it requires you to reconfigure the gateway to act as a bridge device.
