    Hi all

    I have been reading through some of the topics on here and think im getting
    my head around it.

    I know nothing at all about wifi networking and hope someone can help me out
    here

    All I need is wifi one a pc that is upstairs and the laptop. At this moment
    in time I am on ADSL with a USRobtocis ADSL Router Modem that is connected
    to the main pc by cat 5 and then a run of cat 5 upto the 2nd pc upstairs

    I have also just got a laptop that I want to be able to use while working
    outside and have the pc upstairs on wifi as the cat 5 cable is in the way
    at present.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to purchase to add wifi to the current setup
    or if there is a decent ADSL Router / Modem that can do wifi and what models
    etc people would recomend.

    Were getting wifi put into work in the next 6 months so the laptop is the
    main one to do first followed by the base pc thought I guess for the laptop
    that just a PCMCIA card will do the job. I need to be able to share files
    over the network both at home and at work and at work have the need to be
    able to print to mulitple printers 1 Epson and a A3 printer

    Thanks guys I really am I newbie when it comes to this

    Hi

    To add Wireless to an existing Network you need to buy an Access Point and
    plug it to an available RJ-45 port on a switch/hub or Cable/DSL Router.

    Equipped each computer that you want to make Wireless with a Wireless Client
    card, configure and enjoy.

    You can read the pages in the following link for further information and
    actual instructions: http://www.ezlan.net#wireless and
