I have a fixed internet line directly coming to my place and plugged into my laptop. I have bought a Linksys WAG 160 N router.
How can I setup this wireless router to create a wireless network at my place? The fixed line which I have goes directly in the Ethernet ports only and I donít have any cable that can go into the DSL port of the modem?
What is the best way to use this router and make a wireless network?
Are there any converters available to convert this fixed cable so that it can be converted and plugged into the router?
the fixed line comes from a shared wireless router
It is a direct cable that goes into my laptop for internet connection
That WAG 160 wont work it is a adsl gateway device.. It only has an ability to provide internet if you have the dsl modem in your place. If you want to have wifi all you would need is a linksys AP or a router... Return this and purchase a wifi router or an AP below are two examples...
Linksys WAP610N - AP
Linksys E1200 - Router
If you are only allowed one device through the cable connection you will want a router so you can have a dhcp server that will allow you to connect several devices to your wifi...
