I have a cisco wireless router hooked into a Verizon dsl. If I go wireless I need a adapter and a ethernet to usb dongle. Or run 50' of ethernet cable. Would it connect with a 1-2 splitter?
Yes, you can connect a PC wirelessly to a DSL connection. You will need a wireless access point/router and connect that to the DSL modem via USB or ethernet. Configure your PC to attach to the wireless access point/router using the wireless (802-11a,b,g) or eithernet.
Do you need both a wireless USB adapter and a wireless B- broadband router to hook up a PC in another room that does not have a phone plug?
Answer . \nno...you can buy things like wireless internet cards or drill holes in the wall to hardwire it but having just a wireless thing would be easiest
Do you have to have a Ethernet cable or a wireless Internet card to hookup dsl to your home computer?
Answer . \nNo, but that is the easiest way to connect a computer to the Internet via DSL.
What do you mean? On a Game Boy, On a Nintendo DS, on a computer, laptop, T.V. I don't really no this stuff. I am only a Nintendo DS expert. Any questions on that?? -Scabs If you are connecting your desktop computer to a wireless router, then you will probably need a wireless adapter. Most laptops… today have wireless cards built into them so that you don't need to buy an adapter and you can pick up a signal from any wireless router. (MORE)
Connect the router to the modem using an Ethernet cable. The router can then transmit the WiFi.
Depends on the type of network you want build. Say you have an office building where the employees don't move around alot,. then an ethernet router is best. But if you have a sales flood with laptops always on the move then you need a wireless router. Or if you have both in your buliding then both w…ould be needed. If your system is for your home,. then I would recommend an ethernet router. It isn't as easy to hack. (MORE)
You will need a wireless router for a wireless connection. Connectthe Internet access cable to the wireless router. The wirelessrouter will transmit the data.
Not directly. To create a local wireless ethernet network connected to a cable modem a Wireless Ethernet Router Box (WERB) would be required. It connects to the Cable Modem (CM) using an ethernet cable. If all you want is to have a local wireless ethernet network, the WERB would do that for you a…nd you won't need to use the 2-Wire DSL wireless modem router. The 2-Wire DSL wireless modem router really does the same as CM + WERB but for connection of local computers and peripherals to a 2-Wire DSL ISP instead of to a cable ISP. Normally a cable modem connects to an ISP's cable network on one side and, on the other side, to either a single computer or to an ethernet router which could be either of the hard-wired "local cable" type or a "local wireless" type. The ethernet router then connects to several local computers or peripheral devices such as printers, scanners, etc. . A DSL wireless modem router connects to an ISP's 2-wire copper telephone line on one side and, on the other side, via a local wireless ethernet to several local computers or other peripherals such as printers, scanners, etc., each of which must have a local wireless ethernet connectivity device.. It is not clear from the question that you want to enable local computer users to connect reliably to either the ISP handled by the DSL wireless modem router or to the ISP handled by the cable modem. If that is what you want, then, if you are not already familiar with setting-up ethernet devices -- which may be the case as you asked this question here -- either get an ethernet router expert to help you or read the instructions that come with all modems and routers to find out what to do..

Yes, you can plug a wireless router in an ethernet. But don't forget to use the wireless router internet port when you are connecting to an ethernet. Should the question not be "Can an ethernet cable plug into a wireless router?". If so, then yes it can. Usually there are a few ethernet ports on …the back of your router. One bit of advice I would give is to watch out for the internet port. I have seen people, plug a client computer into the internet port, even though it clearly says internet above it. Though some routers arent this helpful by labelling each port, so just be careful what port you do plug the ethernet into. Taking a different view of the question, I assumed you were asking if you could plug the wireless router into the wired network and use the same dsl or cable modem to get out. If that is the case, then the is still yes. But when you cable from your wired router to the wireless router, plug the cable in one of the (typically) 4 enet connections and NOT in the one marked Internet. Also, verify that you have the DHCP in the wireless router turned OFF, so addresses are assigned from the wired router. There can be 1, and only 1, DHCP server on a segment. (Only one boss for this job). (MORE)
Can you use a USB to Ethernet adapter to access your external hard drive if connected to your wireless linksys router?
You should be connected to the router either with a wireless connection or with lan connection.
I want to know of somewhere I can get an Ethernet splitter. I have a PS3 and computer that I want to run through the Ethernet cord but my dsl box only has one Ethernet slot. Any ideas apart frm router?
You could buy an ethernet splitter from Amazon.com copy and paste the link below into your file browser http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&search-alias=electronics&field-keywords=ethernet%20cable%20splitter&page=1
you dont. u have a limit on wireless say 10 megabites. once u use that all up you drop down to dialup
A cable is a wire and therefore cannot be wireless. There are wireless routers that transmit the same information wirelessly however. You need a wireless router and a wireless receiver.
If the laptop computer has a wireless adapter installed, either internally or externally, and it can communicate over that adapter to the wireless router, it is time to disconnect the Ethernet cable. The computer will only use one network path to the router at a time.
The ethernet cable should come from a modem or router. The plug for you PC is likely the one that would go to the router or modem from your PC. Just as the PS3 has the ability to be either Wired or WiFi so do some computers and that is why they have a spot for an ethernet cable. The PS3 has Network …setting that can be switched to allow you to have a wireless connection or a wired connection, but not to have both. The wired connection provides the best connection for the PS3 because the connection can not be lost as with a WiFi connection. You will also find when running the connection test for the PS3 better speeds for the wired connection. (MORE)
You can use any cat 5 ethernet cable to connect the xbox 360 to the router.
\nIn short, yes you can, but some devices require more power than others to function properly so you may see a drop in performance or range but yes, the device SHOULD function to a reasonable extent using a usb hub.
Have a dsl modem downstairs and need to connect to a computer upstairs. I am not allowed to run an ethernet cable dont want to run wireless router. Any other way 2 do this. Phone jack or power outlet?
I don't Think You'll be able to do that without a cable or router you can get a cable from about 45m for around $30AU. Another thing is that you could try to move the dsl modem upstairsbut oh well. i use a router,i got it about $90-$100AU.
Yes a lot better. Wireless connection is just connivence, for performance there is no other way to go but ethernet. wireless runs at about 1 mbps while ethernet usually runs at about 30 mbps depending on the cord and network.
No the first part of the connection process on the PS3 searches for an ethernet connection, once it does not find one it then searches for a wireless connection
How do I connect a wired scientific atlanta 2203c cable modem with only a usb port to a wireless router with only Ethernet ports?
connect the cable modem to PC using the usb port, leaving you the ethernet porton on the cable modem to connect to the wireless router.
yes, but pointless. you only need router if modem is not wireless no matter how many computers you're connecting
How do you hook up a cable modem to a wireless router to a ps3 ethernet with out interfering with the wireless in my laptop?
\nIf you connect your modem to the router, and then using one of LAN port (router's) connect the PS3 to the router, you will not interfere with wireless signal at all.
no,beacuse that is why you buy a wireless 360 adapter just connect your wireless adapter and go to network settings set it up to work with your router wirelessly
yes it does not matter what kind of interface you use for connecting to PC that usb card implements a wifi and every wifi router standards based of course must work
What exactly do I need I have a used laptop that I am trying to connect to my wireless router and when I download software it says I need an external ethernet adapter is that a card or something else?
What it means is it cannot find wireless adapter, make sure that you have turn it on.
RJ-45 uses twisted part of different categories. The most common is CAT5E (100MHz, up to 1Gbps when all 4 pairs are used) and CAT6 (250MHz, native 1Gbps). There is a newer standard CAT6A that is even faster.
A wireless router will not allow you to connect any computers using an Ethernet cable or they must all be wireless?
Most wireless routers also allow you to plug in 4 to 8 other Ethernet cables. It would not be a router otherwise, it would simply be a wireless access point. The cable connections are also faster than the wireless (at this point).
One can connect an usb adapter to an access point by simply plugging in the adapter to the PC and using the software which came in a CD along with the adapter.In case there is no software for your adapter,then you can make use of the built-in utility for wireless connection in your operating system.… (MORE)
Your laptop cannot have a wireless router. What it has is a wireless adapter which is not the same thing. And the answer is yes, you need a wireless router if your dsl modem does not have one as an option.
Wireless is just that; it's a wireless connection to your modem or router, which works by sending information through the air, much like cell phones or radio. By that same token, it is subject to interference, and people other than yourself may be able to remotely access your Internet connection if …they can get past whatever security you've set up for it. Ethernet cable on the other hand is a physical cable for sending the same information; because it is not subject to the same interference as wireless, it is more reliable. Furthermore, if you make it so that you need to physically connect with a router, you can completely prevent the above scenario of someone hacking into and using your Internet connection through wireless. However, getting that physical connection can be arduous in a household with multiple computers because you need to find a way to get the cable from those computers to the router; avoiding this one-time hassle is why many people choose to use wireless instead.

You need a Ethernet to connect the router to the networking box. All other things (except desktops) do not need a cord to connect to internet.
You should not have any problems doing that. Just make sure that they are compatible.
via ethernet cable. then go in your web browser and type in the default ip address for your router OR run the setup program that came with your router. Default Ip addresses: Linksys: 192.168.1.1. D-link/Netgear: 192.168.0.1. If your wireless router is not any of those. Simply search "default ip… address for _____ routers". (MORE)
If you have an ethernet cable plug it into the modem and they should be connected. My Modem is connected with a router to the rest of the network and with the internet modem and is both wireless and wired
You can not connect a DSL modem/Router to a Cable modem the are two completely different devices. Basically one speaks English the other speaks Mandarin and neither has Rosetta Stone.
Not in most cases. Most wireless (or WiFi) routers also have an ethernet RJ45 port and you can connect that way with a CAT5 cable....even connect a switch for more ports.
Wireless routers have spots on the back to plug in ethernet cables. Mine has one input and 4 outputs. It may work if you plug in one wireless router to your modem and then run the ethernet cable from the out of that wireless modem to the in on the other
If it is wireless, then a wire should not be necessary. Otherwise, if the wireless does not work, use a Ethernet cable if it is not too much hassle, or contact the provider.
Can you use a cable modem and connect it to a DSL ethernet internet connection and an ethernet router at the same time?
No you can not. Cable modems use RF or Radio Frequency to transmit data, usually converting that RF frequency into fiber optic via a node. DSL or Digital Subscriber lines use electricity like a phone line. You could also say Cable modems use coaxial cable and DSL use telephone wire. The two mode…ms are not interchangeable. (MORE)
An ethernet cable splitter is used to simplify the amount of ethernet cable needed when connecting more than one computer to a network. Ethernet cable splitters are not needed for only one computer.
"An ethernet cable splitter allows you to connect two computers to one ethernet connection. Once you have your splitter made, you plug it into both computers just as you would with a normal ethernet cable."
Not sure exactly what you mean, if the ethernet cord connects to the wireless adapter then yes. (Or the wireless dongle plugs into the ethernet port). Can you unplug one then use the other then yes. If you mean can you use a USB wireless dongle and the ethernet connected to the same network then… no. (MORE)
You need to have a WiFi router or Modem and you need to set up the PS3 for the WiFi connection. Only the old 20 GB models did not come with WiFi, but few internet service providers offer WiFi connections without paying extra
The functions of an Ethernet to wireless adapter is that it allows you to connect your tablet, computer or laptop to the internet from wherever you are by finding Wi Fi hotspots.
First you must have an internet service provider and it then depends on what equipment they have provided. An ethernet cable will connect to a modem or a router and go to the device for a wired connection. I used a Cat 6 ethernet cable and a router to split the signal from my first cable modem to a …router and then from my PS3 and PC connected 2 more ethernet cables to the back of the router. Later Comcast sent a gateway modem and that already had WiFi and more than one spot to plug in the ethernet cables and I put my router away (MORE)
Wireless ethernet adapters are very easy to install, being plug and play. Simply insert the adapter in the provided slot on the computer and update or install the necessary drivers.
You can purchase it in a normal electronic market in your own city or in the internet at differenct markets or shops. You can try them out. But always be aware that they are serious.
One can buy an Ethernet wireless adapter at most electronics stores, including Best Buy and Radio Shack. One can also buy an Ethernet wireless adapter through websites such as Newegg and Geeks.
A wireless device can be connected to Ethernet by using an Ethernet to wireless bridge. This allows the wireless signal to be converted into a physical connection where it can be passed on to other Ethernet devices.
