I have installed a netgear wireless router according to the wizard disc and it says I have completed it..however it is still connected to the computer..how do I make it wireless?? If I just disconnect it...
wireless hasnt got nothing in relation to the wired internet ports on your computer. think of it as two seperate books.
if you have brought a wireless router, you SHOULD have brought a wireless card to go inside your computer, just like you need a skybox to watch t.v from the satelite, it doesnt go straight to your tv. just like the wireless signals doesnt get 'absorbed' by your pc.
IF you have also brought, inserted, and installed the wireless card you should follow these steps.
firstly you need to go into 'network connections' and find your wireless connection you have. double click it and you should see a screen where you search for your wireless network, which the netgear wireless router will be sending out the signal. Once youve found your wireless network you can double click it and connect. some people will have a password, called a network key. this should be provided in the paperwork of the netgear wireless router.
GIMME A 'FIXYA' :)
