Wireless router and USB adaptor

  mgmcc 12:18 26 May 2006

It is normally necessary to connect to a router by ethernet cable initially to set it up. This is due to the "chicken & egg" situation - you cannot connect wirelessly because it isn't set up and you cannot set it up because you cannot connect wirelessly. Hence the need to use an ethernet cable.

Does your daughter's laptop have an ethernet port? It doesn't matter which computer is used to set things up. Once configured, connections can be totally 'wireless'.
