I'm looking for a simple to set up wireless modem router. I don't claim to know that much about wireless networks, but this is for my sister, who knows even less! She's keen to do the setting up herself. (At the moment she thinks she's too dependent on me for computer maintenance, and at times I'd have to agree!)
There's no need for long range (laptop & main computer are always under 30 feet from the phone socket), nor for high speed. There are only the two computers to network. Obviously, a reasonable amount of security would be needed, but I don't think a state-of-the-art router is required.
I lent her my Dynamode R ADSL C4W EG (Ebuyer, quite good in general, nothing special, but not easy, but after reading its meagre instructions and complex set-up, she said she'd rather revert to a 5.25" floppy disk than go through all that hassle!
So, can any of you recommend a make/model with a really straightforward set up routine, preferably cheap rather than advanced. Ideally, something that would (quote) "make sense while installing it, rather than make me feel an idiot.." .. when she can't do it!
Apologies if I don't close topic too quickly; she's going to look in on the site in ready expectation of help, while I might be away for awhile.
Thanks, in advance for any help you can give her. As her computer problems sometimes occur at 6am, I'd be slightly glad for her to be able to sort this out herself!
