A survey commissioned by Linksys shows that 59% of the UK population who have broadband at home have a wireless network.

The survey questioned more than 2,000 UK adults online and found that 69% had a digital music player, 57% a DVR/PVR or hard disk recorder, 53% a games console and 15% a digital photoframe.

With an increasing amount of devices and gadgets now available, people are connecting them together over a wireless home network.

Linksys said they were using wireless networks to surf the web, watch high-definition video, listen to streaming music, share files, make internet phone calls, and play online games.

The survey revealed that people are already beginning to dispense with unnecessary cabling using wireless, with 28% having attached their printer to their wireless network, 20% their games console, and 6% their digital music player.
