If you call Time Warner Cable they will attempt to get you to rent a wireless router for an additional monthly fee and charge you for its installation. Considering you can pick up an 802.11g for under $40 and installation takes less than five minutes it is by far the cheaper and easier option, and one which is not prohibited by Time Warner Cable.
We have two desktop pcs both with vista and my son got a laptop today (Acer with wirelss- vista) we currently have only one pc hooked up to RR through motorola cable modem provided by time warner. Can I just purchase a wireless router such as Linksys Wireless G speed booster Router and have all three computers work? Or should I call time warner and have them install wireless? The laptop will not connect via plug in modem either. It continually searches for wireless! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
