HELLO ALL....JUST NEED A LIL BASIC HELP FOR ADDING A MOBILE PHONE TO MY LAPTOP WIFI CONNECTION, THE PERSON THAT NEEDS THE CONNECTION IS SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN THE LOWER PART OF OUR HOME, SO, A CABLE WOULDN'T WORK IF ONE IS NEEDED UNLESS IT IS ABOUT 30 FT LONG OR LONGER...HE HAD IT BEFORE, BUT NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED...THINK HE GOT A NEW PHONE THAT DOESN'T OFFER FREE INTERNET...HE HAS TO PAY "ALOT" THANKS MUCH!!
So you already have a wifi connection, right? If so just tell him your SSID (the name of your router that you connect to on your laptop) and your WEP/WPA/WPA2 password (whichever you happen to use)
If you are using a cable from your modem to your laptop then you are going to need a wireless router.
Hey mouse thx much for your quick reply! That's the only prob, what is the WEP/WPA/WPA2 is that the wifi code? And yes I have a wifi connection...it's something like 88D889 ''ex' And how would I know what the SSID is? and 'if you don't mind?' what is the SSID "mean?" and the other codes? what are they? yup, a real newbie..thx much again
