Wireless access point provide Internet connection?
Ok i have a wired network using a cable modem, router that hook up to 3 computers. There's still an opened port left on the router. So my question is if I bought a wireless access point and connect to the open port of the router, then get a wireless pci adapter and hook up into another computer. Will that computer get Internet access? or just network access?

It should have no problem getting Internet access...as well as network access.
how come I did that , but it only detected the signal and the signal was strong too. But the Internet didn't work
Can you ping the router IP? If so then it's probably a DNS issue. ipconfig /all from a command prompt and paste here if you can ping. If not, then start troubleshooting that.

Ok, tomorrow im going to get an access point agagin and try again, and i'll let you know, thx .
Nope I didnt get it to work. So I made another post, plesae help me out, thanks.
With the prices going down and standards getting better why not replace the existing router with a wireless one. I just installed a linksys G wireless router and everthing works very well. Reliable signals at 54MB and full network access. My router allows up to 4 wired connections and lots of wireless. (it says up to 255 connections but i wouldnt put more than 6 on a peer to peer.
PS the linksys way about 100.00 canadian

if the computer also has a wired adapter, run ipconfig (or winipcfg if you are using win98), release the IP of it, then renew IP of the wireless adapter.that is what i did when i experienced the same problem.
