Want Wi-fi for My Nook HD

I have comcast cable, and my cable modem is Arris TM5026. I got a Nook Hd for Christmas and I want to have Wi-fi connection.  What kind of router do I need for my modem?  What do items do i need to purchase.

Thank you Happy Holidays.

You need a wireless capable router. Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, Asus, Apple Airport are all good brands. Just don't go *bottom of the barrel* on any of them.

I also received a Nook HD for Christmas.  So I don't need to change anything with Comcast, just go to the store and buy a wireless capable router?

That depends on what you have now, a regular straight cable modem or one of those combo modem / router gateway devices. What is the exact make and model number of what you have now ?

Re: Want Wi-fi for My Nook HD

can you be more specific?  I'm looking on Amazon and there are too many to choose from and haven't a clue which to choose from.

I prefer not to recommend specific routers but here is a very good site for researching all things router. Take a look all around it, there is so much more than this throughput page !;
