Nephew has new LapTop. Win XP. Family has PC with XP. PC has AOL Broadband on it. Nephew wants to connect his Laptop to the PC so can use the PC broadband connection. Wants to do it without wires. Can someone explain how to do it in simple steps please?
well I have read them all & am rather confused! Thought it was a simple thing but seems many ways to do it! I think Nephew wants to be in another part of home when using laptop & not in pc room so needs some kind of infra-red thingy. Does that make things simpler/more complicated for connectivity? Family pc is currently connected via a AOL broadband modem.Does not want to buy another modem. Seemed to be under the impression that can plug modem into something which will allow connection to pc & infra -red signal to laptop.Is this all pie in sky?
We have two laptops, which work anywhere in the house, they are linked to broadband using the Linksys Radio Transmitter and Belkin PCMCIA radio receiver/transmitter The whole set up is a bit expensive, at over £200, but we find the ease of us is a big bonus.
