If you connect your modem to the router, and then using one of LAN port (router's) connect the PS3 to the router, you will not interfere with wireless signal at all.

All you need is an ethernet input on your laptop and a ethernet cable. Run the cable from the router output to the laptop input. Most wireless routers also include ethernet outputs in the back of the router. The laptop should discover the connection

If the laptop computer has a wireless adapter installed, either internally or externally, and it can communicate over that adapter to the wireless router, it is time to disconnect the Ethernet cable. The computer will only use one network path to the router at a time.

You have two basic options. 1.You can connect your laptop to your cable, fibre optic, or DSL modem or Ethernet port using an Ethernet cord. 2. You can connect your cable, fibre optic, or DSL modem or Ethernet port to a wireless router using a Ethernet cable. You then connect your laptop using wireless to your wireless router.

A wireless adapter for your XBOX, a wireless USB adapter for your Laptop, and a wireless router. The two devices will communicate with each other through the router.

If you wish to use the wireless network card built into your laptop, then yes, you would need a wireless router. Many ISP's provide you with a modem that also acts as a wireless router for your internet service. But if yours doesn't then you would need a wireless router in order to connect without cabling. But if you don't mind running a length of ethernet cable from your modem to your laptop, then you wouldn't need a router.

There is no difference between a laptop or a desktop when setting up a router. You should use an Ethernet cable when setting up your router, and use the wireless only after it's setup.

Your laptop cannot have a wireless router. What it has is a wireless adapter which is not the same thing. And the answer is yes, you need a wireless router if your dsl modem does not have one as an option.

You can connect your laptop to the Internet with a cable modem, sure. You will need an Ethernet cable to do that. If you want wireless internet, you will need a cable modem, and a wireless router as well.

You only need one ethernet connection on the laptop for DSL. If you need to connect to other computers on an ethernet network then you can buy a 4 or 8 port Wireless/Lan router. Plug the Broadband box into the router, laptop into the router. And if you need more connections then you can buy a 4, 8 or 16 port ethernet switch and plug the router into that and then plug the other computers into the switch and there you go.

No, you don't, but you should have a wireless network card installed in your computer in order to receive/transmit signals from/to wireless router. Of course, if your wireless router has ethernet ports, you can attach computer with a cable, but in this case router will be working as traditional ethernet router, not wireless.

You can connect your laptop to a dial-up connection, or you can use a high speed Ethernet cable to connect from your cable modem or Ethernet wall jack to your computer. If you want wireless internet, you will need a cable modem or an Ethernet wall jack and a wireless router.

If the wireless router is like mine then you also can make an ethernet connection with the PS3 using an ethernet cable

No. You need a wireless router to connect via wireless from your laptop.

Either Wireless or Ethernet through a wireless or ethernet router that is not provided and neither is the Internet.

Your router WILL need to be wireless to connect wirelessly to your Xbox, but you can use an ethernet cable if your router is not wireless, straight from the router to the XBOX

User Avatar

First, plug them via ethernet cord. then, your laptop with vista should act as a wireless router (with the right settings). networking controller enabled. and allow access to xbox. this is all only if you have a built in wireless card/router

User Avatar

no...but a modem with a built-in wireless router would.

how do i get my laptop to pickup my cisco wireless router while using ubuntu. my laptop will not show wireless connect

User Avatar

Put them on the same network. If you have a wireless router connect via wifi. If you don't you can connect the two laptops to the switch with an ethernet cable. If you don't have a wireless router you can connect the laptops via ad hoc network usuing the laptops wireless. And if the laptops happen to not have wireless you can always use a crossover cable.

If you have a router (connected to internet), and you get a laptop with wireless enabled you do not need anything else. You can connect your laptop to the router and have internet on your laptop.

to split the Internet between different computers or to make it wireless if it is a wireless router

User Avatar

If the access point has a wireless interface and if your laptop supports the wireless network type, no you do not need a router. <><><><><> If the laptop is not near enough to an access point, it will not be able to connect. The router is immaterial.

User Avatar

It is possible that the router (wireless network) that you are connecting to is not currently connected to a modem (the internet). In this case, your computer will say that it is connected to a wireless network, but the network is not connected to the internet. If you have access to the router, check to see that the router has an ethernet connection to a modem.

You buy a wireless router, wire the desktop and router to the modem, and use the laptop by getting a wireless card or usb wireless adapter.
