Okay heres my question. Im getting a new PC with Vista x64. I know that wireless cards are pretty bad with that OS so i was wondering if i could buy a new router and put it next to my new pc and just hard wire connect it. Would the router be able to pick up the wi-fi signal from my router connected to my modem?
You can hardwire your computer to the router and will work the same as wireless. If you already have a router, you should be able to use that. As far as I know, all wireless routers allow LAN connections
okay its like this. On my first floor, i have a computer (old one) and a router connected to the modem. If i ahve my new computer upstairs, can i buy another wireless router upstairs (not directly connected to modem) and connect it to the new pc.
Why not just connect the Vista 64 into the existing modem/router setup?
I don’t believe ‘’home use routers’’ are capable of router to router communication. Of course commercial routers can do this, but you will need a little skill to code it and a little more money as they are substantially more expensive.
I have to believe by this time Linksys, Netgear, D Link, or Buffalo have the Vista drive issues straightened. While a bit more expensive this is a nice Converter, it has a LAN connection to the computer. Picked it up for when I'm working on a computer and don't want to mess with adding add wireless card or when my grandkids come over and want to go on line with a game controller. Works very well. Did have to call the support for the first set up but they answered the phone and we got the problem solved. Of course if I could read may not have had to call them
I am looking for a pair of LAN-Wireless & Wirless-LAN converters.
Reason being I get cable TV through a set-top box connected via LAN to my broadband modem. I now want to move the set-top box away from the modem to a TV in another room.
If you have a link to a good brand please post!
