[QUOTE=getit29;2515172]The easiest thing to do then is just buy a wired router and some Ethernet patch cables
to run to your other PC’s in the house. I just do not trust wifi connections anyway they
are to hard to keep secure and to hard to maintain sometimes, just give me a plain old
wired connection and then I’m a happy camper. [/QUOTE]
can you give me some links? I have attempted to set up a wireless connection with an apple airport extreme, with my at & t DSL modem, with the main pc in the kitchen, but it has proven to be very difficult & frustrating, there are kinds of complicated settings with the airport & the modem, when I hooked the 2 together, neither seemed to work completely, the apple software that came with the router could not connect to the internet. I tried to look up my problem online & I came across an article that said to put the modem in bridge mode. This was a mess, I lost all internet connection altogether, I had to call at & t tech support to reset the modem & get internet access again. I do not want to mess with the modem settings at all, & lose it’s functionality. So simple plug ins with no software & system changes to make things worse would be good.
The odd thing was I could connect online & my ipod touch could connect to the wifi network as well, but the apple software could not open & set up the apple router.
So at this point, I am about ready to give up on a wireless network, my pc is not capable of it, nor does the apple router seem to be.
are there any wired router models you can suggest? I have a pc in the kitchen, running windows service pack 2, with at & t DSL modem, with a single Ethernet & DSL line coming out of the back.
I would like to be able to use/hook up a macbook laptop to the router for internet access, so I can use the laptop in another room.
