Hello,

To make your home network, connect everything to the router and power up in this order: Router, Desktop, printer and notebook. The router will get its IP address from your ISP and acting like a DHCP server will give IP addresses to each device connected to it. Just make sure the desktopa and notebook are in the same workgroup.

Good Luck

What do i need to hook up wireless -g 2.4 ghz


I believe the laptop is wireless.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your router is already set up and other computers are able to go online using the router then you don't need to change anything on router, you will need to connect to the network only.

How to hook up a netgear router to make computer 2 a wireless system(comp.1 is desktop and 2 is also) recently changed from dial up to a verizon wireless system but not sure how to hook it all up.


You need to install a wireless card in computer 2.
Then install the wireless driver for this card.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Is the laptop the only computer you have? Do you have another computer connected to your router?
You can't generally connect a printer to a router without another device, such as a PC or a wireless print server.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)
