Hello all, I have a compaq presario s3100nx. My daughter just purchased an acer one laptop. Both comps are running wins xp.I would like to have both comps connected from my home. I use verizon dsl. I have no experience with network setup. Would it be as easy as purchasing a wireless router ? Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Joe

Hi, if you purchase a wireless router then th laptop can connect without having to be physically conected to the router. Is that what you want to do? If so this is the best way to go.

Monty007, Sorry for the delay in responding. There was a death in the family. My pc is connected thru verizon dsl. I would like to hook my daughters comp up to the same connection, so both comps can be used simultaneously. Whats better wired/wireless? thanks joe
