I have a PC running on Vista with a broadband connection via a BT Voyager 210 router and ethernet.
I have recently purchased a small laptop mainly for travelling but also used at home. The laptop has both ethernet and wireless connectivity.
I wish to change my broadband to wireless so I can use the laptop anywhere within the home, but not sure how to go about it? The PC does not have a wireless function, so does this mean buying some sort of wireless 'duberry' to plug into the ethernet port of the PC? Or does it go into a USB port and if so will I need drivers - also I always thought broadband via USB is inferior to USB?
Yes, my PC is running on an Ethernet connection. So if I understand you, a Wireless Router will attch to my PC's Ethernet port by cable (without any plug adapter etc) and my laptop will connect wirelessly?
Yes,your last posting is correct, longbelly. That is exactly the set-up I have. My router is a now fairly old BT one -"BT voyager 2100 wireless ADSL"; my desktop PC is attached by an ethernet cable; my laptop is wireless. And provided that the modem is switched on, the laptop connects even if the desktop PC is switched off.
