How Connect Desktop Ethernet CAT5 Wireless?


R

roger

I am preparing a Dell desktop for my son who is not local.

It has XP SP3. It has an Ethernet connection which works well, using
CAT5 with my router. My router is also wireless, and works well
wirelessly with my laptop. My son needs to be able to use the desktop
I am fixing for him wireless.

So I figure I need to get and install an adapter to plug into my CAT5
slot that will then connect wirelessly with my router (and to his).
I can then simulate what he needs?

Is there such? Someone point me to one? I got confused when I
looked.

Thanks

Big Fred

or you can get a wireless adapter that has a USB connector but is on a
cable to allow you to position it for best reception.
Netgear wireless-N dual band is one I use.



Have to look at that. Thanks

If you cut the CAT5 in half it will connect by means of capacitance.

It's true because I've done it before.
