  1. The router needs wireless capabilities or else it can't send out a wireless signal.
  2. You could do internet connection sharing through the XP machine that way but its a HORRID idea. Just get a wireless access point to connect to the router

    If I throw it off a bridge, would you jump after it?

    quit hijacking a thread to try to tell people to do something when they only asked a question, in which i answered it. You have no need to be here and your not helping the cause by saying "buy this, or are you too poor?" and yes i would just off a 1-2 foot bridge into a creek for those 20 dollars, like i said if you have money to throw around, just give it to me. I'll find better uses for it then you obviously.

    I am sure its more economical to keep a PC running just to maintain a WiFi connection than to purchase a faster (most likely) wireless router for as little as $12

    Also, I was thinking something along the line of the Brooklyn Bridge.

    and if his computer is running 24/7? it would be less costly to run a usb adapter then plug in a router. and sure, fly me there, i want a fancy diner too, and the rest of the money you have, followed by the 20 dollars off the bridge.
