Question about Computers & Internet

Wireless set-up Trying to install the SMC7904WBRA-N ADSL2 Barricade and the instructions say to 'Connect Network Card of my PC to the Yellow LAN port on the Barricade' My PC is pretty old doesn't have a Network Card Point. As I want a wireless set-up I guess I'll have to install the SMCWUSBS-N2 Wireless Adaptor first rather than use the ethernet connection. Are there any problems in doing it this way (apart from the point you mentioned about possibly losing connection quality)?

No, there shouldn't be any other problems associated with it. What kind of computer are you trying to connect? How old is the operating system not to have an integrated 10/100 mbps ethernet port on the motherboard?

So I just got a Dell Optiplex sx280 that runs windows xp and can't connect it to the wireless internet at my house. The built-in driver is a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller, and I don't...


Desktop computers do not usually have a wireless card installed. They will have a built-in LAN card that uses a LAN cable.
If you want to connect your computer using a wireless connection then you will need to install a wireless card in your computer and configure it to communicate with your wireless router.
Otherwise you can connect to your wireless router using a LAN cable.
Your wireless router may have built-in LAN ports and you can connect your computer to the wireless router using a network cable.

I need to connect a real router with more ports to it 4-2 pcs


Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.

Note: no need for any CDs to "install" anything.
