Best wireless router

My sister wants a wireless router for her laptop. She has dial-up internet service. I have a Linksys - B (802.11b) router to send her. Will this work? Is there a better solution?

Thanks

She could use it to connect to a Local Area Network, but without plugging it into a Wide Area Network cable (ex. DSL, Cable, Fiber, etc.) she will not be able to connect to the internet..

In other words, NO, she cannot just fire that up and get internet access without a ISP Provider.

She still has to have some way out to the internet, and that is still her dial up connection..

    As far as solutions go, she has a variety of choices, but they all mean contacting an ISP (Internet Service Provider) for access.. Depending on her location, her choices MAY include:



    DSL

    Cable Broadband

    Wireless Satellite

    or what is not getting very popular, WiFi Broadband using CDMA technology, like the service from Verizon.



    I use a combination of Cable Broadband and Verizon CDMA (for traveling with my laptop)

My sister is visiting and when we tried to put her laptop on my internet hookup the message was displayed stating that my internet connection through comcast was unsecured. What do I do to correct this...


its letting you know that your wireless network is open and not secured. she just needs to acknowledge it and she will be able to browse the internet but it is not secured.
if you want to secure your wireless network you will need to configure it by opening internet explorer
browse to http://192.168.1.1
the default login is blank and the password is admin
click on wireless
click on wireless security and choose wpa personal
enter a passphase which you will use to join your wireless network securely on any wireless device.
your sister will need to rejoin the network once you do this and you will need to rejoin any other wireless device to join your secured wireless network.

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

Laptops connect to router but still cannot get on internet


It's just a wireless interference problem. All you need to do is change the wireless channel of your router. Login to the router's admin page and look for wireless channel under the WIRELESS tab. Change it to channel 11 and save the settings. That should solve your problem. You can play around with different channels and check which one is the best for your environment. Good Luck!

Telephone connection


Unless you have dial up, you arent supposed to be losing any connection between the two. If you are, i would call them up and have them come out to fix it for free. That is completely rediculous.

Trying to hook up the Linksys wireless router to my computer.


Maybe you had a faulty piece of equipment. Return the product, and buy either another. By the way Net Gear are recommended best by Geeksquad for range, speed, quality, and how long they last.
