I have just purchased a D-Link DSL-924 Wireless G ADSL2/2+ Router Kit.
I have a desktop PC in a room upstairs in my house connected at the moment with a wired router.

I wanted to know can I have the wireless router situated downstairs at my telephone connection but not connected to any computer and connect my PC upstairs to the net.

P.S My PC does not have a wireless card, do I need one?

Thanks

John

<<<< I wanted to know can I have the wireless router situated downstairs at my telephone connection but not connected to any computer and connect my PC upstairs to the net. >>>>

Yes, you can but the quality of the connection will be dependent on what lies between the router and the PC, in particular the composition of walls & ceilings through which the wireless signal has to pass.

Yes, you will in order to connect wirelessly to the router. This can be either an internal PCI card or a USB WiFi adapter.

You will need to connect a PC or laptop to the router at first to setup the wireless and security then you can go totally wireless

Thank you I will try this. I understand now why the instructions ask you to connect to a PC first.

The kit comes with a USB Wifi adapter.
