Yes, you will require a Wireless Network Interface Card. You can buy them at Staples/office max or online at places like http://www.tigerdirect.com It will come with a driver CD that you will need when installing it. Linksys and Netgear are good brands (I prefer Linksys).

If you find that this information is helpful to you, please rate me on the FixYa website using their "thumbs up" scale.

If you would like to use your office computer "wirelessly", then yes you must purchase a wireless network adapter so that your computer and wireless router can communicate with each other.

If the wireless router will be installed relatively close to your computer, you can plug the computer into one of the ports located in the back of the wireless router.

I want to get the TIVO AG0100 wireless adapter. I do not have wifi in my house so will it still work? I'm not planning on getting wireless for my computer.


Dear,
Since it's an adapter and not a router, it will not work if you don't have a previously installed wireless network.
You might buy a wireless router and connect it to your computer and use Tivo at the same time.

How do I connect wireless my MACBOOK & HP PHOTOSMART C4480


You need to connect your printer to a wireless router in your home/office. Once it's connected successfully, you then run the HP software on your computer and it will ask you how you want to connect to your printer. Select the option "Wireless" and then it will search your network for the IP address of your printer and then you should be able to print wirelessly to your printer.

Wirelss router not working


I don't think it needs to be replaced. have you installed the installation disk that came with it, if so

if you have windows
1. go to my computer
2. click on the my network places tab on the left panel
3. then click set up a wireless network for a home or small office
4. then jut follow the wizard set by set.

if that doesn't work, make sure your computer's wireless adapters are able to pick up your router's N broadband signals. if not you might need to go out and buy wireless N adapters for all your computers.

I have installed wbr-1310 to main puter but cannot install on lap


Make sure the wireless capabilities are turned on on your router.
On your computer scan for available networks and it should detect the router.
Once detected it will ask you for the Passkey/WEP/Secutity Key.
You should have a note of this when you originally set up your wireless connection.
If not then your computer network set up wizard may 'kick in' and just follow the instruction.
Remember to keep a note of your PASSKey/WEP as you will require it in future

Good luck

How do I network my dell desk top and my dell laptop


If you are planning on networking two computers or more I highly recommend purchasing a wireless router. Once you have a wireless router make sure that you set your network connection settings, your Local Area network or Wireless (whichever you are using), to DHCP. Connect your system to your router and normally that's it. Also normally with a router it would also come with a CD. For setting up your network you could also use that for easy setup.

I am trying to connectmy basement computer to my upstairs office


Your wireless router issues IP address to your computers.
Your wireless card on your downstairs computer needs to be configured to communicate with the router, ie WEP or WAP encryption - if your have enabled it, SSID etc.

To configure the TCP/IP settings on your downstairs computer -
Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on Properties.
Then in "This connection uses the following items, scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties. Under the General Tab make sure Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically are selected. Click OK.

If you do not see TCP/IP in the Wireless Network Connection then click on the install button and then install the TCP/IP driver.

IF TCP/IP is OK then before you do the following, turn off or disconnect the power to your wireless router, wait for 1 minute before connecting the power again. Wait till the LED lights indicate that it is on line again and the wireless is on then :-

Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on View Available Wireless Networks
Do you see your wireless network (ie. your wireless router)?
If so click on your wireless router and then click Connect.

You can also click on Repair to try to reconnect to your wireless router.
Let me know if it works.

Wifi


You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.
