    Hello, I have a Westell Versalink modem that is set up for a wireless
    connection for my laptop. My desktop is connected to it by cable. My son
    also connects his playstation to the modem to go online. My son would like
    to be able to play his playstation in his room. My question is what is the
    best way to acomplish this? Can i simply hook up another modem or is there a
    way he can access my modem wirelessly? Thanks in advance. Bill

  3. Hi
    From the way you describe your system the devices that you call a modem is a
    Modem Wireless Router combo.
    If it is so you need a Wireless card for the Play station (example in the
    post by Bob) and it should work.
    If it does not work as is you would need to check the Modem/Router to make
    sure that it set correctly to support two Wireless devices see the
    Modem?Router manual).
