Wireless Network Setup Tutorial:
I have a desktop pc running XP Home. This is connected to phoneline broadband and works well. I have just bought an Acer Aspire 5633WLMi laptop which also has XP Home and has built in wireless facility.
I have spent days looking at routers etc so that I can use both machines in my house. I am totally confused as to what I need or should buy? My house is over 100yrs old and all the internal walls are brick and I understand that I may need a reasonably powerful unit to obtain good connection in and around the house and garden. My connection speed is not high at 512kb due to my phonelines coming overhead for some distance as I am on a farm. I am also hoping to network the pcs and maybe my printer.
Can anyone possibly give me some idea of what I should use, including any cables? I hope to be able to set this up myself....
Any help would be gratefully appreciated before I go round the bend.
