Hi,Is it possible to have wired laptop and wired pc with another wireless laptop to same router? I am considering buying desktop replacement laptop but keeping desktop in order to run printer/scanner off it.Thanks
Yes. My router supplies wired connections up to four PCs and wireless connections.
HI and thanks for response.Sorry for delay but out last night.You have given me the answer I was looking for.Many thanks again Ian
Note: A 100W power consumption average Desktop costs about £2.50 per week in electric.(24/7 on)I have the configuration you are suggesting.(Laptop/modem/router downstairs, desktop/printer upstairs)Normally upstairs PC is on standby.I go and wake it up to print (bit of a pain, but I don't print much)Also has a TV card which I use with the HDD as an extra PVR.That wakes it up for a scheduled recording and can be set to go back into standby after.I did try Wake-on-LAN, but it didnt work easily for me. It starts getting bit complicated.That project is "on hold"I found I hardly ever need my desktop except for print and TV card.Consider a Network ready or Wireless Printer, and the desktop can stay off. Printers dont take hardly any power when not printing. It all adds up in these energy conscious/rip off times.
Sorry for double post
