I have had a residential network. for several years and I am trying to find out if this is still the case. I want to put an iPAD
in the network. But I am uncertain if I am WIFi.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK! let's try to verify if my home network is in fact capable of WIFi.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My printer is an HP shared with two computers, i.e. a DELL and an IBM. This is the first opportunity to test my use of the IPAD.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If we can proceed by using this method, i.e. q&a bytypewriter.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
To recap: I have an IBM computer and a DELL using the HP printer. The network is using a UBEE modem and NETGear as the link to the communication device. I believe that this configuration makes the network WiFi capable. BUT I do not know if my config is OK. Please help me to insure that the config is OK.James Burke

I just looked at the back of the NETGEAR router. I says that the router is "Wireless-N Router WNR1000" the UBEE lights are
all blinking except the light labelled "TEL 2"

yes, that sounds like the wifi is broadcasting. Does your home network name appear in the list of available networks on the iPad?
