Specs: Windows XP, Intel Centrino/2GB
I have Desktop and Laptop connected to a Huawei-make,Model No Smart AX 882, ,via ethernet & USB port. Is it possible to convert the same ADSL wired modem into a wireless modem for my Laptop.
Can anybody suggest, the type of hardware to be used (e.g., wireless access point or a wireless router) through my USB port in the wired modem?also explain what is the configuration change I have do in my wired broad band modem?

The device you have seems to be a combination modem/router but it has only a single ethernet port plus the USB port. If you only have two client systems you do not need a second router but it may be a less expensive option to get one anyway. The other option would be to get a network switch plus wireless access point.

Personally, I would ditch the huwei and invest in a single ADSL Modem/router that has inbuilt 4 port ethernet plus wireless. Otherwise you end up with three wallbunnies to achieve the same result.
