View Full Version : Setting Up A Wireless Network

Hey guys I was just wondering if you could give me some tips and advice on setting up a wireless network.

This is what I'm planning to do: Connect the ethernet modem to this Wireless Router (http://games.dlink.com/products/?pid=316), which will then allow a lapotop with a built in Wi-Fi card to access the internet.

Then I will buy a Wireless USB adaptor (http://games.dlink.com/products/?pid=334) and plug it into the desktop PC, which should let that computer access the internet as well. I also intend to have the printer connected to the desktop PC and wondered if the laptop would also be able to print using it.

Finally I plan to connect an Xbox up to the router, using an ethernet cable (straight), which should enable the Xbox to connect to the internet.

Seeing as I know very little about networking I was wondering if you guys could tell me if this setup would work, allowing the 2 computers to access the internet wirelessly, the Xbox to access the internet using a cable, and for the laptop to share the desktop PCs printer without cables?

Thanks in advance
