2wire capacity for wireless connection

I've purchased a Linksys router and a usb wireless adapter for my pc because I didn't know that I could connect wirelessly with my 2wire modem that I originally got from my sbc internet service provider.
My question is: if I return the Linksys router, am I going to be able to connect wireless to both my pc and my laptop (I also purchased a wireless card from linksys for my laptop).
Thanks

Can I connect a second computer (not a laptop) in my bedroom wirelessly to the 2wire modem that I have connected to my main PC?


Yes, you can. just make sure that the computer has a wireless capability, if not then you need to connect a wireless adapter so you could connect the computer to your 2wire router wirelessly. Another possible way to have it hooked up to your 2wire router is via Ethernet cable but depending on the distance you may need a longer cable.

Hi I cannot connect a NETLINK 2wire modem to my linkeye g router. What do I need to set so I can get the modem and router to connect


The 2WIRE modem will have at least 3 ports:
* AC power,
* 4-pin telephone-cable, connecting to a telephone-jack in a wall-port,
* 8-pin Ethernet-cable, connecting to the 'WAN' port on the LINKSYS router.

Look at both ends of the Ethernet cable. It's necessary that the colour-arrangement of the 8-wires is _IDENTICAL_ at both ends, i.e., a "straight-through" cable, NOT a "cross-over" cable.

With another "straight-through" Ethernet-cable, connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-adapter port on your computer.

Turn on the 2WIRE modem. Wait for the lamps on it to settle down to a repeating pattern.

Turn on your computer. When Windows finishes booting, you should have a connection to the Internet.

Hi, I'm an idiot! PLEASE HELP


you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling.
The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...

I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.

Can I use old 2wire router to connect PC to new wireless router?


Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.

Let me know if you need any further help regarding this.

Unable to connect Linksys wireless router to my arris cm450a


All routers will only work with ethernet. You would need to get an ethernet card installed in your computer. You can probably buy one for about 20.00 at Walmart. If you don't want to do this you can purchase a usb/ethernet adapter and still use the usb port on your computer. You can purchase one of these for around 5.00's on ebay. Just go to ebay and search for usb/ethernet adapter. Please rate if this has helped. Thanks.
