TQC, I've decided to buy myself a Christmas present this year. After almost seven years, I've decided to retire my old desktop computer and turn it over to my dad for his daily solitaire tournaments. And in turn, I'm going to buy myself a shiny, brand-new laptop. I am beyond excited.|
Part of the reason I'm so excited is because I can finally get rid of the ungodly snarl of wires and cords under my desk and set myself up with wireless internet. In advance of getting the computer, I've been googling everything I can about setting up wireless internet access. I'm not worried about it, really, because I know that one phone call to my ISP will get it set up for me.
However. In my googlings, I've read in several different articles that you need a wireless router to set up wireless internet access. Is that really necessary, or is that only if you're going to be having more than one computer set up? My laptop will be the only one set up for net access, as my father (God love him) couldn't navigate the Internet with a map and a Sherpa to guide him.
HALP, TQC. Do I need a wireless router for just one computer, or will my modem (which is fully wireless capable) suffice? I know some shit about computers, but not this much. LOL.
