Hi everyone. I am looking to buy a new router and I had some questions before making the purchase. I have a Windows XP machine (does not have wifi support) that I am connecting directly to the router I have right now via an ethernet cable. I also have a laptop and a phone that I am using but they are connected to my router using wifi. I was wondering that if I got a new router, Will I still be able to connect my windows XP machine to the new router using an ethernet cable. I dont know if the router I am using right now has some special capabilities to let a Windows XP machine connect to the internet. Thank you.

 

Summary: Will I be able to connect a computer that does not have wifi to a new router using an ethernet cable and still receive an internet connection?

Yes, all modern routers have ethernet connection as well as wifi. It is required for configuration.
