My laptop is not able to receive wifi. However, my flat mates new laptop is wifi enabled.Is there a way I can continue with my ethernet connection and he use his wifi of the same broadband package?I am with Virgin media and have fibre optic broadband.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks
is the wifi on ? Does the laptop have a wireless card ?Some times a small switch needs to be turned on,or try FN+F2
Routers allow many devices to connect to the internet through one broadband connection,either hardwired or wireless.It just means that your connection speed in split between the devices.
We havent installed wifi into the flat yet. I am just trying to see whether it is possible to have a computer running off the ehternet cable and then another laptop via a wifi connected to the same broadband package?Is that possible?
Thanx iqs. Will all routers allow this?
I take you have not bought a router yet ?As long as your laptop has an ethernet port you can both connect to the internet via the router.One wireless and one hard wired using ethernet,but personally if both using laptops...why not both go wireless.
thnx skidzyHw would I go about converting my laptop (old vaio, made before wifi was probably even invented) to be able to receive wifi?
Have you got the vaio model number,so we can take a look ?You maybe lucky and just add a wireless card,but we need to know the model first.
model number PCG-FX405Thanks
You could also use a usb wireless adaptor and sync that with the router.A lot of router kits come with a usb adaptor.
Thanx skidzy. Real help.
