Winds, if you have a desk top computer like i do and a laptop, leave the desk top hooked directly to the modem and go from the modem to the wireless router for the laptop.

all you should need is a wireless router.available at WalMart, Office Depot or many other places. most come with pretty easy to understand instructions and are not that hard to hook up. if i can hook one up, you should have no problems either.

Sure. Just pay attention to those instructions. I recommend reading them all the way through at least once before starting.

Winds you will be fine, read the directions first then follow them. The computer will do most of the work. And if I could do it you can easily!!

Go ahead and try it yourself with the directions. The great news is, if you manage to mess it up, it's nothing that can't be fixed. Oh, and, secure it with a password. You can set it up so that your computer remembers the pass, but anyone else would have to ask you for it, at least the first time.
Agreed. My router is both wired and wireless. We use the wired connections for our at home computers for the better speed (games like Everquest and World of Warcraft need it). But I use the wireless when I have to bring my work laptop home. You definitely want to secure any WiFi router so that your neighbors can't run up a bill that looks like it originated with your router.

Winds + Chainsaw = SCARY!!! But there are no rotating blades on the (computer) router...

Does Djilas, who is himself a writer, not know what human suffering and the human heart are? Can't he understand it if a soldier who has crossed thousands of kilometers through blood and fire and death has fun with a woman or takes some trifle?
