I'm considering moving my pc in the next few weeks. Problem is, its at the back of the house, and I'm not prepared to be drilling holes in the walls for the bt line to pass through. The electrics are going to be difficult enough never mind my aol connection. I've been looking at modem routers, and they vary abit in price. Does anyone have ideas, about these, and maybe any recommendations on what to buy?
i have just gone wifi got a linsky 345g on advice from ade.h of this forum. it was a first class tip. simple to install 24 hour free phone helpline which i used to set up security, excellent recetion all over our houe and garden.
If you do not use a wep encryption which windows gives you and you need to keep a printed copy of that encryption codes, you will run the chance of people using your wifi to access the internet via laptops. Normally any of the netgear D-link Linksys Belkin will help you install the wep encryption fairly easily. Ask your ISp as well particularly if you have a full phone package included with your contract
LETS PUT IT THIS WAY! If you do not use encryption someone outside your house in a car can download what they like (inc child porn) and the police will trace it back to your router with no way of tracing the real scum!!!
