BT wireless BB. Use USB or Ethernet cable ?

  leedaz 10:57 08 Feb 2006

Got my Voyager 2091 wireless modem/router this AM. Should the main house PC (in the room where the phone line/modem will be) be connected by USB or the yellow (Ethernet??) cable. Which would be best. PC has spare USB ports and Network port on mobo.
Other house PC will be wireless on Linksys WUSB54G USB wireless-G adapter. Should this config be easy to get working ? ie. Is it plug and play ? Or could someone point me in direction of a tutorial, if I might encounter problems. Thanks.

Ethernet (Yeloow) is always best.

Disable all software firewalls during setup.

I'd suggest reading the manual or disc that come with the gear. Basically it's install the card software and scan for available networks and connect to yours.

Enable wireless security (WEP/WPA) once it's all working.
