Help - Wireless Modem

  danny4681 11:47 28 Nov 2005

I have had to move my pc upstairs. I use AOL dial up internet. I would like to get a wireless modem to use the internet instead. Would i still have to have a phone line connection in the same room as the pc? I was hoping to have the wireless modem in the room next to the pc where there is a phone line. Its less that 20 metres from the pc. Or have i got it all wrong!! Please help, my head is dizzy! Thanks 12:41 28 Nov 2005

Normally you connect one PC to the wireless connecter via an ethernet cable,and run other PCs or laptops wirelessly, but I don't see why it wouldn't work as you said if you had a USB adapter for your PC.
You would be better off copying this thread to the Networking section, where several memebers are experts and would guuide you with confidence!
