I have a wireless modem.
It is a Surfboard SBG6580 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway. Made by Motorola. The word Arris is next to the word Motorola. I own the modem, and I called Time Warner. I have a desktop computer connected to it with a cable. I tried going on with the laptop wirelesssly, but it won't. It detects a signal, but it wouldn't go on. I had one laptop update Windows, and it wasn't connected with the cord. I was on the internet with my desktop at the time. I did the setup, and everything. My laptop is a Windows Xp. I have another laptop with Linux Mint. I have not tried that one out yet.
Would my modem work without a wireless router? Do I need a wireless router? Can I get a wireless router for less than $60.00?
