on both machines and use the router, and remove the wireless adapter in the desktop.
You can use either connection to set up/manage the router.
I'm setting up a 2 computer network. Desktop is wired: desktop <-> router <->cable modem <-> internet. I have a wireless adapter in desktop and laptop.
Here's the questions. I think I can access the desktop via the wired connection or the wireless connection.
How does the browser decide which to use ? How can I determine which path is being used ? Can I control the choice ?
As I understand things, the wired connection is used to setup/manage the router + it allows me to maintain broadband communication with internet.
The network cards exist so the desktop and laptop can communicate/share independent of the Internet.
Does this make sense ?
