I have a quick question and maybe you know the answer. I am using a cat6 cord to run from my TV to my wireless netgear router for netflix to avoid the buffering. If I plug it in to the LAN terminal will my wife still be able to use the wifi with the laptop from that same router at the same time. So basically will the Wifi and the LAN terminal work simultaneously or can you only use one at a time.

Yes, you will be able to use wired ethernet and wireless 802.11 simultaneously from the same router with no problems whatsoever :)

Hi Anamica,

No setup is required. Just setup your wireless (wifi name and password, etc. ) and then simply plug your computer into the ethernet port.
