K well,

I have 4 computers, 3 wireless and 1 hardwired. And i want to make it so i can hardwire a desktop PC that is in my room but the modem and the wireless router are downstairs connected to the hardwired desktop PC. I did move the wireless router and modem in my room and make that computer wireless but then my brother started complaing thats its slower casue its not hardwired anymore, and wouldnt shut up about it so i want to put a modem and then a network hub there so its still hardwired and then move the wireless router and the modem in my room for the desktop so that it is hardwired and then also the other wireless computers in the house are closer to the router and get a better connection.

Is this at all possible??

Thanks in advance.

One DSL modem per telephone line.

Run some network cable from your computer(s) to the router. Most routers have four ports on the back so should be able to connect all your systems to it easily. If not, any 4 port switch hub will be needed.

it is common with errors at the start up of a new router most problems can be
resolved by going into the routers ip address and doing some simple tweaks

best wishes :whistling:

You can also use HPNA if you do not want to run wire.
