Question about NetGear RangeMax NEXT WNR834B Wireless Router
My son just moved in and has a desktop and I have a desk top as well, I have internet on my computer but not on his. How can we connect this router to have internet on both? i am very illiterate when it comes to these things. please help out with the simplist instructions. thanks
Hello...if your son's desktop is set up near the router, the simplest way is connect his desktop to the router via an ethernet cable.
To do this, find an ethernet cable. Plug one end into a spare port (socket) on the back of the router, and the other into the ethernet port on his desktop (it should look like this, with the ethernet symbol under it).
That's it! He should soon be connected to the internet.
NOTE: If you need to buy an ethernet cable, key words to look for are Cat5e or Cat6, straight or patch cable - NOT crossover.
If your son's desktop is not near the router, you may want to consider a wireless connection. Please come back to Fixya if this is the case, as this takes a little more time.
