Wireless Network for my laptop

Good Morning,

I don't know what products I need to purchase for my Dell Laptop to create a wireless network so I can work from home. I have an internal modem and my laptop must have the capability to be networked cuz I've gotten onto wireless networks in the past. So do I need an external modem for my cable internet if I already have one internally in my laptop and how do I create my network at home?

You must purchase a wireless router. I recommend Linksys. If your laptop has ethernet capabilities this will work just fine. (ethernet ports look like oversized phone cord ports) they are very simple to use and install in minutes. just be sure to make sure your network is password locked!
If this helps, I would really appreciate a FixYa! rating. If not, do not hesitate to contact me. I own a linksys wireless router, and can help you install it, if need be. Have a good day!

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP


First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Any wireless router should do just fine. Make sure to purchase a Wireless G or N, should be clearly stated on the box before purchase. They run about $40 for a ok one. Very easy to configure to.

Good luck with everything and I hope I could be of some help.

Wireless router


hi frank its a new thing to have to go out and decide what router to purchase and install i use a linksys and have had good luck with the wireless connection quality . does his laptop have a wireless lan card installed most new laptops do have one but its worth a look to make shure it does. depending on how much you want to spend how far away does his laptop sit from location of router ? if not more than 10 ft go ahead and purchase a cheaper one 60.00 now if you want a better quality one go with the twin antenna linksys for about 130,00 and please make shure that he installs the security software that comes with the router and make a password and secure it for shure .i hope ive helped you decide on what router to purchase they all work fairley good .
as far as how they work they are all plug and play install the cd software first then follow instructions carefully and set up is 10 minutes away good luck by for now
