Question about Toshiba PCX 5000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway Bridge/Router
I have only one computer, a laptop, and need to use it in more than one room in my apartment. I have internet connection via cable, and have one modem. So far my only computer is connected to the modem, but I will need to move it around the apartment. Will a router suffice, or do I need to get a modem router combo in spite of having a modem already? Does the combo or the router need to be connected to the computer?
As you already have the modem you only need a router. In all cases the modem connects to the WAN port on the router.
I think your best bet surely would be to go for a wireless router though? Then you wouldnt have to trail ethernet cables all round the house. I'm sure your laptop has a wireless adaptor built in unless it;s very old.
I always use Netgear networking stuff so forgive me posting a link to a nice 54G wireless router :-) :
