Question about Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A PC Desktop
Need assistance starting up my aspire computer m5641(basically, I just bought one and I'm trying to get on the internet. Only thing is, I don't have a land line connection running to the room the acer cpu is in. I do have a cpu with DSL running to it in another room. What do I have to do to be able to get an internet connection available on the ACER CPU?
That would depend on how you would like to get the internet connection to your ACER.
Benefits: Faster connection, easier setup, more secure
Cons: Wires must be physically routed requiring drilling through walls or passing through vent openings.
What you'll need:
Cat 5 ethernet cable from router to ACER and to your HOST PC
Ethernet network interface cards (NIC) in both PC's
any length of cable exceeding 100-150 feet will likely need a network Hub to boost signal strength
Benefits: Wiless acces to host PC(no drilling through walls etc.) can connect multiple PC's by simply adding a wirless card to new PC
Cons: prone to interference, less secure, setting up security protocols can be cumbersome
What you'll need:
Wireless Router/Access Point(AP)
Wirless adapter for remote PC (ACER)
Someone who is knowledgable about Wireless security to setup the firewall settings in the router.
OK so now that you have the options you can decide which is best for you.
Ethernet : If your willing to drill holes or pass through vents this will give you a faster connection
Wireless: This makes for a no mess/no fuss connection but at the expense of security and potential interference from cordless phones etc..
If you need help setting up your Network connection after you decide which you'd like please feel free to ask.
