Using Routers
« on: May 14, 2007, 07:46:13 AM »
Hello dear helpers,

I have "verizon"  and my girl friend is going to move in with me and she has "comcast".....

I am going to get a wireless router to give her access to the internet...

(My question is)---will she have to cancell her COMCAST and suscribe to VERIZON...

How will this transaction work?

Sincerely,

Bluessmith

Not if you get a router. Just cancel hers and keep yours.

If she has a COMCAST email address, she'll need to give that up but, otherwise, no need to have two separate ISPs.

Hello again friendly people....

While on the subject of routers - have any of you who use wireless routers any advice for those of us about to use one?

Thank you very much,

    Read up on wireless security.

    Have a professional install it if you're not up to date with wireless security, installing drivers or installing hardware.
