natimage Posted May 4, 2004 Share Posted May 4, 2004 OK...I'm once again embarking on something that I know next to nothing about!! I am now the proud owner of high-speed cable internet service! And I must say I've been quite pleased so far! Only one problem... I did not have a cable outlet where I wanted to set-up my computer, so the cable-guy left the cable line running across the living room (at my request) until I can go wireless. Which brings me to my questions: 1. First and foremost - if I set up to have a wireless cable connection here in my home, is it going to slow down my internet speed? 2. Can someone recommend hardware to be used?? My laptop is already set to use wireless connections, but my PC is not. PC is less than a year old, but was custom built and neither of us thought of putting in a wireless card. 3. How hard is it going to be for me to ensure security of this wireless, home network for my PC and laptop?? Thanks for any help!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
