    Hello Everyone...
    I'm kind of a computer networking newbie. Currently, I have a couple of PC's wired up to a Linksys Cable/DSL Router, and the Router is wired to a DSL modem. Recently, I discovered that a notebook PC with some kind of a built-in wireless Internet connection picks up a signal at this location. I can surf the web and check my e-mail on their notebook PC with no wires attached!
    My question is this: what kind of a box can I plug into the Router (instead of connecting the DSL modem) that will make my little home network pick up that same mysterious signal? I recently purchased a Linksys Wireless G Ethernet Bridge to try to accomplish this, but I think I bought the wrong thing. Any ideas?

    You need to buy a wireless router to replace the device you have now plugged into your cable modem or an access point that will work in conjunction with it, but keep in mind you will also need a wireless adapter for every computer that you want to connect wirelessly.
