Hi,

She will be using DSL. So run the telephone cord from the wall jack to the back of the router? There's no telephone jack on the back of a router.

Hi,

You can hook just one computer up wirelessly.  Here's basically what you
might have:

1.  The telephone jack would either provide for a dial up or DSL connection;
2.  Next to the telephone jack, you would install a router.  It is a small
hardware box.  You would connect it, usually to the DSL modem, but
hypothetically you could set up a router on a dial up connection if the
router supports dial up;
3.  The computer would access the internet wirelessly through the router.
The computer would have to have an 802.11 wireless card added unless it
already has this.

This is quite common to do.

Will your friend be using DSL or just dial up?

Regards,
Mika

Subject: [guispeak] making 1 computer wireless

Hi everyone,

I have a question to ask but I'm sure it's not going to work but I'm
going to ask any way.  Ok I have a friend that's going to purchase a
computer with the works.  Where she want to put the computer  there's
no phone jack.  She said that the telephone company won't put one
there because of the rules of the people who own the condos.  So she
was told that she couldn't run a long telephone cord from the
telephone jack in another room to where she wants the computer.  So
she brought up connecting her computer up wirelessly.  I told her far
as I no you can't just hook one computer up wirelessly because it has
to be wired.  So my question to the list is can you hook just 1
computer up wirelessly?  Is it possible?  Please help me out with this.
