I have wiifi on my computer do i need a router


This is a very good question. The short answer is that you do need something to take your Internet signal coming into your home and broadcast it wirelessly. You have to options here:
1.) You can contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and ask if they have any modem/router combos. This would be one device which would serve as your modem AND wireless router. For example, AT&T has their "2Wire" (that's the brand name) modem, but it has full wired and wireless functionality. Setting up one device is much easier than configuring a modem and a separate wireless router for a few reasons. First, your ISP will walk you through the configuration of their device OR they may even send a tech to your home for the installation. Second, your ISP will generally NOT help you with a 3rd party device (ie. some wireless router you bought at Best Buy). Finally, when your network goes down - and it will someday - it is waaay easier to troubleshoot when you have the single device modem/router combo.
2.) Buying a wireless router would be your other option. This router would work WITH your existing modem. If you have DSL, the setup can be difficult if you're not experienced. If you have broadband/cable Internet, then it's a bit easier. In the latter case, you could just call the manufacturer of the router and ask them to help you set up your WIFI network (and secure it!) and they will usually help you free of charge.
In summary, I recommend going with a modem/wireless-router combo if you have DSL. If you have broadband/cable Internet, it probably doesn't matter. No matter which way you go, you will be spending between $60-80 (please don't spend more than $80. pretty please.) I hope this was helpful information. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to reply to this message.

Is my Asus Eeepc 701 with Linux OS and Firefox Browser compatible with a wireless N Wifi router?


If you're thinking of buying a N router, it should also say somewhere 'a/b/g/n'. The different letters are different variants of wifi and the router page will show which is supported (if it is an N router, it will most certainly support the others). The eeepc 701 can only use wifi of a/b/g, meaning that, although it can use the lower variants supported by the N router, the actual N variant that you're paying for is redundant. With this in mind, I recommend that (unless you have another computer with N capabilities) you save your money and buy a router without N, it is probably cheaper.

Which wireless router will work with an emachines e725


Actually any wireless router should work with this Emachine that you have, but I strongly recommend you get a wireless router from Linksys with this model number WRT54G so you wont be having any issue connecting the Emachine to the internet.

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.

My thinkpad will not connect to our wireless router. it shows our neighbors routers. I am on my husband's laptop which is right next to my laptop. His laptop is showing full signal. We have a Linksys...


Check you internet settings. Set up a home network from your computer and use all the recommended and default and automatic settings. Then the program will renew the IP address on YOUR pc to match the routers.

To access your router. Go to your pc's web address and type 192.168.1.1
If it by chance asks for username and password, type "admin" for both. Now you can set up your router options from your pc

I have an older HP laptop with no wireless capability. We have DSL with the wireless router connected to our desktop. The only way I can access the internet is by putting in the AT&T air card. I don't want...


You can connect to the Internet using your DSL wireless router by several methods.
1. If your HP has a LAN port the you can connect to your wireless router with a LAN cable (provided you have a spare LAN port on the router.
2. You can use a USB wireless adapter to connect to the wireless router.
3. You can use a PCMCIA wireless card to connect to the wireless router.
Both the wireless USB and PCMCIA wireless adapter are approx. $50, my preference is to use a PCMCIA adapter, it leaves the USB port free for other devices,such as USB memory sticks, especially if the laptop has only one USB port.

I have a broadband internet connection at home which had a modem and only one LAN cable. Now I have 2 laptop's one with Microsoft XP and other MS-Vista. Whenever I try to connect internet the one with XP...


if you had say one desktop and one laptop I would say to buy another LAN card for the desktop and enable internet connection sharing on it for the other computer but with two laptops that might not be possible and you will need a router.
But routers are pretty cheap nowadays and you can probably find a basic 4 port router on eBay for around $20 (you don’t really need to spend the extra money on a wireless one unless of course both laptops have wireless connections then you might find that a wireless router to be pretty useful.)
But to answer your question YES you need a router since a router will take your IP address and split it up into multiple internal IP addresses and allow more that one connection to the internet that will appear as one connection to your ISP
