Hello everyone. I'm a newbie here (obviously I guess) and I am attempting to rebuild (or build) my wireless network.
A few months back, I purchased a Linksys router because I wanted to be able to play my PS2 online and have someone surf the net @ the same time. The game and workstation are both in the same room so that was no problem.
Call it beginners ignorance or just plain old ignorance but I didn't secure the network. I know that neighbors etc could hop on to my connection (I'm connected through Comcast) but I didn't care.
I also have another PC in the house about 2 rooms away that I also wanted to (eventually) connect to the router.
Today, I purchased a laptop and as soon as I hooked it up and turned it on, I was connected to the internet (and could also hop on to my neighbors' unsecured networks if I wanted to).
So anyways, I have now decided to do the whole shabbang - Secured Wireless Network.
So here's what I have so far on the (Unsecured) network:
1. Workstation 1
And here's what I want on the (Secured) network:
1. Worsktation 1
2. Workstation 2
5. Shared Printer (if possible)
My router only has 4 ports - but I figured I wont need a port for the laptop right???
