How or where on my computer would it tell me if my desktop is capable of wireless internet connection?
I have recently decided to move my office into another area of my home and would like to find out if purchasing additional wiring is going to be necessary before unplugging and moving my computer.
As I did not set up my computer personally, what do I unplug to check for wireless capabilities.
Hope this makes sense, advice and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
It's unlikely youre desktop PC is wireless compatable out of the box. Does it have a small aerial sticking out the back of it near to the ethernet connection?
I am not familliar with your modem, but is it also a wireless router?, if not you will need to buy either a router or a wireless router/ modem, Linksys have a good reliable range.
For your PC you will need either a wireless card (internal to a pci slot) or a wireless dongle plugged into a USB slot. All the required software will come with whatever route you go down.
If you need help with configuration post back on a new thread....
