My desk top computer is definitley 'wired' to the router. I don't know if i have 'wireless' enabled. The wireless light on the hub is lit up, however, i presume that is because of the hub phone that i use.
First question is a general one, can an infected laptop infect a desk top computer if it is next to it. I haven't a clue how laptops and wireless hubs or desk top pc's work.
Do laptops in the open air work in the same way as radio's do, as in plucking out of thin air in receiving and sending signals/data?. Will it automatically choose to use/hijack my router/hub if it is nearby in preference to thin air? If so back to my first question can in infect my router/hub/computer?
Many sincere thanks in advance of replies and apologies for being so uneducated on how computers work.
