Wireless routers for Dummies RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking for some kind of tutorial on what type of router to purchase and how to set it up. 

    I am going to add a laptop with my home desktop and need to learn the basics for setting up a home network. While I am also interested in data transfer between the two, my primary focus is how to get both computers on the internet (I have a cable modem and am not a gamer). 

    Although I am a dummy, I am not a moron; ignorant, but not stupid.  Any advice will be appreciated and mostly understood, mostly.

  • Thanks to you both.  That is exactly the kind of info I was looking for.  I am no longer a dummy, just slightly(?) ignorant.

    Keep a hairy eyeball on this site for when I try to hook up my lttle network and it does not work.  Thanks in advance.
