Your wireless network adapter (wireless USB dongle) needs to connect to another wireless device. That is usually a wireless router or wireless access point (WAP).
Q: Is your ADSL modem a combination modem-router? If so what make & model?
The typical setup is the following:
Internet --- broadband modem --- broadband router > > > computers
> > > wired and/or wireless
Note that you could have a modem-router instead of a modem plus a router.
hi i bought a wireless usb dongle to connect my pc to a laptop, however i am having trouble making it work.
My setup is as follows:
ADSL MODEM ------- PC 1 ---------- PC 2
PC2 shares the internet connection from pc 1 and i want to do the same thing with the laptop. what i did was install the usb dongle and then bridge the wireless connection with that connecting to pc2, however wireless is still not working. any help?
