I set up the wireless router on my PC desktop using ethernet cables, and set up the network through the router's installation CD.
Using my new laptop's wireless card, I was able to pick up the wireless network and connect to it. I can now fully access the internet on the laptop.
However, when I try to set up a wireless home network on my desktop PC, I can make another network just fine, however it tells me to use a flash drive to transfer network data to the wireless access point, then the other computers, and then to put it back in the original computer. The only problem is, my wireless router has no USB port, just ethernet ports.
So what exactly am I doing wrong? I've tried to make a normal home network, and set up a workgroup, but when it configures the computer for the networking, it tells me to run the Network Setup Wizard on each computer. I repeat on my laptop and it tells me the same thing. However, I don't see any networks.
I'm venturing into a whole new world of hardware here, and I'm sinking fast. Can someone please help the tired old newbie?
