I want to change from my wired modem supplied by Tiscali to a wireless router/modem. How easy or difficult is it? Do I have to make many changes to my PC or will the installation disk take care of everything? Are there likely to be any problems with my e-mail settings? Any help will be appreciated.
It's fairly straightforward, alfredgerald. As you were with Tiscali, I assume you are now with TalkTalk. If so just follow the instructions on the TT CD and it will guide you through the process. Or are you going to buy your own router?
I have also used a Netgear router/modem and found the process easy. Make sure you get a modem/router not just a router and don't forget to set up the encryption for the wireless side of things. All the instructions are on the CD that should come with the router.
Agree with all the above advice I was dreading the changeover but it was very easy especially with the instructions given by Netgear.One piece of advice I previously picked up from this forum and that is to save a copy of your router settings.
