Question said by first time user of ADSL Wireless Broadband
Once the Wireless router is on all wireless devices should have local and Internet access
With a hard wire system the LAN card connect speed at 100Mbps, the wireless system connect speed at 0Mbps -54Mbps depending on the distance, amount and thickness of walls, quality of signal etc
You cannot see the wireless system from a hard wire PC only the Local Area Network Connection
Using a wireless connected computer for setup is Not recommended to access router setup at any time.
You should not have both the LAN and Wireless on the same PC connect at the same time.
The normal connect speed on a laptop build in wireless card or USB adapter is 54Mbps on older laptops with build in wireless cards the connect speed is 11Mbps
