Do you need an Xbox 360 wireless network adapter if you have wireless internet in your home?
If you want a wireless internet hookup for the xbox then it is necessary to have a wireless network adapter. If you don't want to buy one you can always hookup the xbox to the internet with an ethernet cable. but do u only need that cable and it will work?? i have wireless internet and if i connect the ethernet cable to xbox from the computer it will work?? Answer- NO you can not plug ur xbox straight into your computer. You won't get internet that way. You have to use an ethernet cable and plug it into ur wireless router. Or you can just buy a wireless adaptor.

How do you get online if you do not have a wireless hub for PS3?
You need internet service to go online. You must either have wireless or ethernet wired hookup to the internet. I used a wireless router connected with ethernet cable to my cable modem. When I didn't like losing the connection I then also used a 50 foot Cat 6 Ethernet cable from one of the 4 wired spots on the back of the CISCO LINKSYS WRT 160N wireless router to my PS3. I noticed improvements in the connection speeds with the PS3 tests using a wired connection and recommend using a wired connection.

How do you hookup a non WiFi computer to the internet?
You can connect it through a traditional network cable. The computer needs a network card for that. It is still possible to get dial-up service over a telephone line. You can search for a local ISP (Internet Service Provider) that still supports dial-up access. Net-Zero is one such company. This requires a modem port on your computer. (don't confuse with an ethernet port, the connectors look similar, but the ethernet connector is wider than the phone line connector). On a windows system you can check for a Modem or Network adapter with the Windows Device Manager. If you have a Network adapter, usually some ethernet controller, you can get ADSL or a cable modem. If you don't have a network adapter (with an ethernet port). You could buy one. ADSL service uses your phone line, it splits the signal so you can use your phone and computer at the same time. Contact your local ISP. A cable modem, is provided by some TV cable services. With both ADSL and a cable modem service connect to your ethernet port. If you have USB ports you can buy a WiFi adapter and plug into a USB port on your computer. (You can also buy a WiFi card and plug into your computer chassis. This will require that you have access to a wireless network. You can buy a ADSL modem with wireless, or add a wireless access point to your ADSL or cable modem. 3G service is available, but expensive. Summary, find a local ISP, they can help you. Dial-up is very slow, and not very useful, downloading pictures, updates, new software is very, very slow. Think about adding wireless to your computer via a card or USB adapter. It means no ugly cables to manage, can handle multiple computers.
What does a wireless router hookup to?
All routers, including wireless routers must be connected to your Internet modem to work correctly. Routers usually include installation discs that will help you with the installation of the router to your network. At least one computer/device needs to be used as a control system so that you can change and test your router's settings. If you do not have an installation disc check with the manufacturer for a free download of the installation software.

How do you connect your hard drive to your computer to mod maps or use halo 3 toy box?
Can someone access my personal files or see me chatting from another computer if they use our internet access--My computer says a wireless computer is trying to access the internet through my hookup?
If someone has access to the data stream from your computer to any servers you connect to, then yes (in the example of wireless connections). Although it's unlikely they can control your computer, it can see what information you are sending or receiving. You can prevent someone accessing your computer by using a simple firewall, and to prevent someone accessing the data stream, you should use an encryption key. The instructions of how to do so should be on the software manufacturer's website. (microsoft = microsoft.com) Use SSL connections when available to ensure security. And never place personal information over a non-secure connection. The way to identify a secure connection is simple, most web browsers have a logo meaning security is enabled. It is usually a closed padlock. These icons will be found either on the address bar or on the status bar.

Hookup a netgear wireless router to a netgear non wireless router and the modem?
You can hook up a wireless router to your already existing modem and non-wireless router. However, you need to set up the wireless router by changing it's LAN IP address and by disabling it's router function so it will function as a wireless access point to avoid conflict with your existing non-wireless router.

If you have 3 computers with wireless hookup do i have to download antvirus on each computer?
Yes. Viruses attack a computer. Anti-viruses defend a computer. Pending on your router, there is usually a Firewall on your Router. I would not bide on that for half a second though. The cost of buying an Anti-virus program for 3 computers almost always comes with discounts, or you can find a good free one. I'd suggest: Microsoft Security Essentials.
