Hi,
I'm very new to this but I have broadband and a laptop with wireless onboard so I wanted to go completely wireless.

I picked out a wireless broadband router, but so far I haven't a clue how to set it up.

The manual only talks of connecting more than one computer so at least one is wired to the router.

How do I set it up so I can have the router plugged into the broadband line but the laptop elsewhere in the house ?


I'm running on XP and have a Belkin wireless G broadband router.


Thanks in advance.


P.

Maybe I've missed this then as all my internet options for connecting for the internet only allow the dialup option !
