Router for Wired and Wireless Access

  JONBEE 22:15 17 Nov 2005

I am trying to share access to a NTL cable modem for 6 users; 3 have wireless capability 3 do not. Can anyone recommend which router I should buy. The Linksys WRT54G seems to be popular but I am not sure if you can use it to connect non-wireless computers.

Hi Jonbee,
this equipment will allow 4 x hard wired PC's and up to 25 x wireless connections to utilize the router( you could add extra hard wired by adding a switch / hub)in between the answer to your question it is able to do what you require. Kegger

You could equip the non wireless users with a USB Wireless Adapter like this one click here= It saves on the cabling and takes 10 minutes to set up. It should work within a 10-20 metre range depending on the structure of your building. Buy one ond try it out on all the machines to test it.
