Question about Routers
I'm trying to connect my desktop computer to a router to allow my wife to access the internet using her laptop upstairs.
I connect to the internet via highspeed modem when it's connected directly to my desktop but once I follow the steps for connecting the router, it no longer wants to go online, or all the way thru the setup process.
The funky thing with 3web is you have to edit the setup on the software to tell it that you are using a router. Never heard of that before now.
Does anyone else use 3web and a wireless router? How'd you get it up and working?
Yes I do know routers require configuration (setup) go connect to some devices to access the internet.
I am not familiar with the ISP 3web -- can you provide me the website where the support or help function is located.
I may have found the 3web help site check the following link to assure the service is right and let me know if you have a DSL or Cable connection.
If you are not familiar wit configuring your wireless router --
Will you provide me with the Manufacturer and Model of the
Router? They all configure differently when it comes to
detailed instructions. (the link provides instructions for
some routers however maybe not for yours)
I may need manufacturer and model information on your modem device depending on what I find at the ISP's site. (if the link is right I probably do not need this)
The following is probably not covered in the 3web documentation.
With wireless services attached to your network you should also consider securing that wireless service so others cannot easily access your network and computers, like your neighbors or people on the street with a laptop.
If you want to consider that I can discuss several options with you. However to determine which options your equipment supports I will need to know the manufacturer and model number of your wireless adapter or the computer with a built-in wireless adapter you intend to connect to your wireless network.
