how do I build this network?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?c2Nvb2JhZ2lybA==?=, Jun 17, 2005.

  1. I have a PC that is connected to SBC DSL thru an ethernet connection/phone
    line. I want to add wireless capability so we can use our 2 laptops from
    another room. Please tell me what to do after I buy the router - does it
    hook up with/through the PC, or does it just "sit there" with the DSL
    modem/ethernet connected to it? (I don't have any idea if my pc is
    "wireless" capable, but we do have wireless cards on the laptops.) I would
    appreciate some advice on this; thanks in advance!

  3. A wireless router must have a direct link with an internet modem. It is very
    likely that it is an ethernet connection from the router to your router.
    Because you wish to use TWO laptops with the wireless connection u must have
    a HOST computer (a computer that is mainly "in charge" of the network
    configuration) if you are running windows XP then this can be done be
    clicking START > CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK CONENCTIONS, and then click in the
    elft panel menu "set up a home or small office network". From this setup u
    can select that u want to use a wireless network and make sure that ur router
    is PLUGED IN!

    Hope this information has been usful to you.
