Avoid the routers with built in modems. Time Warner already supplies that part.
For most routers the setup is painless. Just follow the directions and one more thing.
To move the ethernet cable from the cable modem to the next device be sure to turn off the cable modem, move the ethernet cable to the next device and then power up the cable modem and then follow the directions. For me this always works.
I am requesting help to select and install a wireless router for my home.
I have 1 desktop ASUS model CM5571 BR003 (Windows 7) & 1 LapTop HP TouchSmart tx2-1012nr Notebook PC (Windows Vista).
I have a cable modem from Time Warner.
I am NOT computer sauvee, I do not understand the lingo, I can manage to follow detailed instruction, but that?s about all.
I am Medical professional and although I use many different software programs and systems all daylong, I am only an end User, everything is handled by IT at the hospital.
All I really want to be able to do, is use my laptop in other parts of my Condo (screen porch / bedroom, etc).
I am not a gamer, I do minimal photos, but mostly only Word Processing, simple statistics programs, checking E-mail & surfing the Net.
I had purchased an Action TEC DSL Modem GT724WGR, only to learn during the set-up I cannot use this type of system, (I can probably give this ?wrong? system to my brother for his house), but before I purchase another incorrect system pleeeeeease advise.
