Wireless Help Please?

  kimbo-pc 21:09 18 Dec 2006

Dear All,

I need to create a Wireless network at home so that a new games console can share my internet connection and I would also like to be able to stream music files around the house to a music network player.

I have a Broadband Router (Zoom x5) that is connected to my main desktop PC via USB. A second PC is connected to the main PC with an Ethernet LAN connection. The Internet is shared so both computers can access the Web.

What I would really like to know is whether to ditch the existing Broadband Router in favour of a new Wireless all-in-one job or can I just get some sort Wireless box that also connects to the main PC that just creates a new network?

If anyone knows what the best option is, It would be great to hear from you?

Hi, I have a simple home network, using a modem/router, with just one other pc and a shared printer. So I am not qualified enough to properly help you ... but I would advise you to tick this Thread with the Green tick, and then put your question on the Networking Forum where you will no doubt get more help than on this General Helproom.

Good luck.
