Question about Computers & Internet
Wireless is a headache in my home. I would like to have a central location for my modem and run the ethernet to each outlet i choose. what is needed, a hub, switch, or router. I'm worried about signal loss or loss of speed when splitting the connection multiple times. running the cable thru attic not major concern just want the right ''splitter'' for all computers to run without problems and maintain speed.
If I were you, I would definately go with a wireless network. If you purchased a good router (Linksys or Netgear) you shouldnt experience loss of speed or connection. (If everything is installed correctly) If you need help, you could call the company who provides the router, Internet service Provider, or Geeksquad.

Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.
Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.
Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.
Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure ?other settings
