I have a D-link 504T 4 port modem/router.
Works fine for me - quite happy with it. However, my wife has jsut bought a new laptop with a wifi connection.

Can I purchase a wireless router and connect it up to my D-Link modem router or do I need to by a wireless modem/router?

There are no probs having a separate wireless router connected to a regular Modem/router.
