I have been on here for some time for info on what and what not to buy. I have all the parts and just ordered them from newegg and tiger direct.
I have one last question and it seems like it will sound pretty stupid to the pros on here.
Right now we have a wireless set up in out home. For increased internet speed I am wanting to run a cable directly from the router/modem to the computer which is two floors up. The cable has been run, but am now wondering if i missed a component on my computer.
Do I need any other parts for my computer to acess the internet? Thats my main question - Do I need a modem or something else in the computer itself?
Sorry for the basic question, I cannot find this answer anywhere, probably because it is obvious to computer builders.
P.S. - This is my 3rd newbie question in a few days. I have a very limited computer background and my brother in law convinced me to build my own since I am wanting a 6 monitor set up and dont want the stock promo junk every other computer I have bought before has had. It has been fun doing the research and learning, but there are many things I have to learn. Thanks for all of the people helping on here.
