View Full Version : Need help with wireless connection for 2 computers

02-24-2009, 08:16 PM
Hello...I am a newbie with computers and I just bought a brand new Dell laptop with wireless N...my roommate has a very old HP desktop that does not have wireless card. What is the best setup we could do? I would prefer to have the direct connection to my laptop (for when I download movies etc) but also be able to move it to the living room on the wireless. My roommate will then need a wireless card or that dongle driver thing right?

Would you recommend I do this or should I let him have the direct connection and I just do wireless....if his comp is super slow will that affect me??

Any advice is muchly appreciated as well as recommended brands to buy for a router.

D-Link is a good brand for routers. I have the DGL-4500.
Your roommate will only affect your speed if he is also downloading.
