I have this problem. The computer I currently have is hooked up to a traditional router. I.E One with wires. Now I'm FINALLY getting a computer in my room, however I won't be able to get the wire to my room as I have no attic to run it through nor do I have a crawlspace under my floor. So I intended on buying a wireless router until I realized that the current computer I have does not have a wireless card. At least I don't think it does. Not sure how I would find out. So what I was thinking is there any way to have my regular comp still hooked up to the regular router, and have my comp in my room hooked up to a wireless one? Please Help my computer arrives in a week. Sorry about all the posts, I didn't see the other forums and I found that there were forums more fit to what I need (I.E the Networking forum) but I couldn't delete the post.

Hi SacKings384,

You can purchase many routers with capacity for both Wired and Wireless connections. If you're unsure, you should just ask the guy at the store; he will tell you if it can take both connections. With a 'dual' router, you will then be able to connect both computers, and both computers will be on the same network etc...

It's also not overly difficult to install Wireless Adapters; however in your case it's really not necessary.

Hope this helps,
Dan.

You can connect a dual router that means using a combination of wireless router and traditional router.
