I hope one or two of you experts out there might be able to help. I used the search engine and ended up rubbing my eyes and scratching my head. I need things explained VERY slowly and simply, I'm afraid. I've just bought a Linksys Wireless Access Point Router for Cable/DSL, with the intention of linking the cable broadband connection on my new main computer upstairs with my old computer downstairs. I appear to have set up the wireless router successfully for the new computer, but when it came to setting up an additional computer, it said I have to connect an Ethernet cable from my 2nd computer to a free LAN port in the back of the router. This is impractical, as I can't have a cable running from one end of the house to the other and on different floors. In my naivety, I thought wireless meant wireless. Now the instructions do say that PCs can interact with the PCs wirelessly. What isn't clear is how. What do I have to do to my old computer (running Windows 98SE) to help it connect to my broadband cable internet? Will I need a new network card (I have a Netgear FA311 Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter)? Do I change the IP number on the old computer? Will I need to buy something so it can respond to the waves given out by the wireless router? Basically, what am I missing here (in all senses)? Thanks in advance for all help.
