Wireless ?

  Ritchbee 13:32 26 Jan 2005

Hopefully someone out there is able to point me in the right direction about this subject.

How easy or not is it to do this ?.

What exactly do you need (Hardware/Software) ?

What are the benefits/problems you may have.

Is it worth it ?.

Appreciate any help or advice given.

you will need a wireless access point and a wireless access card which often can be bought as a bundle.
You then contect you modem to the wireless access point and add you wirelss card to pc (there are various types of card such as usb or pci) you then follow manufactures set up guidelines usally via a setup wizard and away you go.If you search the forum you will find all the required information and recommendations to various brands.Is it worth it? well that all depends on your reason as why you need wireless internet,if you want to share connections at various points around the house/office is ideal.It is reasonably cheap to set up.With the aid of the set up wizard it is fairly simple to be up and running in no time
