a few wireless questions....

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Tmlo?=, Dec 29, 2004.

  1. I currently have a wired network with 1 PC and 1 laptop. I have a wireless
    card for the laptop and am having problems with my wired router (its old) so
    I am
    thinking of getting a wireless Linksys router. First question is I know
    someone outside could access the internet using my connection but can they
    access my network? I have both computers running windows firewall and I
    believe the Linksys has its own firewall. What other steps should I take to
    prevent someone from getting onto my home network? Second are there any
    changes I have to make to my network settings when i switch to wireless or
    should I just be able to plug and go, (other than running the wireless card's
    software). My pc will still be hardwired to the router, both run win xp home.
