    that join button means that ur rotuer will set it self up to connect to that network granted that that newtowrk is unporected or you have the wep/wpa key to access it.

    What if my router is connected to my motem and another wirless network? would that eavn work and would i have 2x the bandwith/added speed?

    and if u have ur own internet connection then use yours...

    Dident mean twice the speed, like say i connect will have added bandwith? or something?

    And one i dont think would really matter as its open for public use. Also ive been haveing problems with my net dropping out for about 30 sec or so when a call comes in so maybe just beeing connected to it would give me more stable net?

    If anything i would atleast just like to know what exsactly it dose do.

    no you will not have twice the bandwidth
    in that case if it is open for use then you can use it legally. what do u mean you lose internet connection when the phone rings.....do u have cordless phones. becuase that can cause problems between the router and phone.

    client modes basicly makes you router into a wireless network adapter, with ethernet ports.
