Question about Computers & Internet
As I understand it, you currently have a DSL line with a computer plugged into a modem that is attached to the DSL. Now, you want to use wireless throughout your home.
My choice of router manufacturer is Linksys though there are other manufacturers of wireless technology.
What ever manufacturer you choose, get the device. Hook it up according to the instructions you will find inside the device box.
It will go something like this: Attach a cat 5 cable from the "uplink" port on your router to the DSL modem. Plug your wired computer into any of the 4 other ports. Everything is off, right? Cycle the modem - wait for the lights to settle down. Plug in your new wireless, wait for the lights to settle. Turn on your computer. Turn on your wireless. Wou may have to connect using the windows wizard.
A tool I use for network management is Network Magic, a Cisco product. Cisco also owns LlinkSys.
Get the program, free download and eval period. After the eval period you may purchase or continue to use the product with some features disabled.
