and of course you'll also need a wireless router! B)


Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

But not with any connection to the internet!!

 

I can't count the number of used wireless routers I've seen for sale for a song (that still function well, but are not the latest and greatest but more than adequate for a great many applications).

that's right, he'd just need a wireless router as they don't connect to the web.

even a combo modem/wifi router will suffice, just don't plug it into a phone/cable socket.

hell, even then, it wouldn't work if the building had no internet provisioning.

 

so basically, any old unit would do.

although if the laptops have the latest gen wifi technology, a router with 5GHz wifi might be nice.
