NO ROUTER

networkwiz :

networkwiz :

if not the router then who will you connect without cable?

JACUSTOMER-bbldc894- :

I HAVE SEEN PERSON GET ON INTERNET IN ROOM WHERE THERE WAS NO ROUTER AND NO CONNECT TO MODEM FROM LAPTOP

networkwiz :

networkwiz :

laptops can detect upto 35-40 feet if there is any wifi signal available

JACUSTOMER-bbldc894- :

IF YOUU ARE OUTSIDE WITH LAPTOP IS THERE NO WAY TO GET ON INTERNET?

JACUSTOMER-bbldc894- :

WHAT IS WIFI SIGNAL?

wfi is wireless

networkwiz :

for example you have a neighbour who is just 10 feet away from your place and they are using a wifi router and its an open connection

JACUSTOMER-bbldc894- :

HOW DO YOU BE WIRELESS?

networkwiz :

then your laptop will detect the signal and whne you try to connect it will connect if the router doesnt have a secure connection.

you need an internet service providers line

they will provide you a wifi router if you want

compaq has a wireless on off switch on the laptop itself.
