usb interface ADSL modem and WAP

by amhtet / May 2, 2005 6:16 PM PDT

I have ADSL modem that uses USB cable to connect to the PC.

Now, I have bought a notebook with wireless access and want to use wireless internet access within my home.

When I search WAP products, they mostly connects with ADSL modem via WAN port/cables. Not with USB cable.

what are the best options of making it happen without abandoining the present ADSL modem.

Wireless router with built-in ADSL modem are too expensive for me to buy.

Any help is appreciated.

I had a similar setup.
Unfortunately, the only way to resolve is buy a wireless MODEM/ROUTER. Stupidly I ended up buying a Wireless router and realised I needed to buy a modem with and ethernet port.
Now, I have a new MODEM/ROUTER and a Wireless router. But, it all works and cost about the same as I bought them from ebay.

Hope this helps

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
