Specs: windows 7 home premium, 1gb
i have a wired network at home with about four computers on it. it's a mix of windows, linux, and mac. i also have a couple of laptops that have wireless capability. i'd like to swap my wired router for a wireless and notice that i can get them with four ethernet ports on the back in addition to their wireless capabilities. all opf the searching i've done points me to setups for strictly wireless configurations. i'd like to just plug in my four boxes into the four ports and re-enter the same settings i have currently, thus replicating my current setup, and then add the wireless laptops to the configuration. how would i set up such a mixed network? i'm starting the basic wired setup under windows 7 home premium. then trying to add the wireless to it, also under windows 7.

You should only use one connection per computer to the same network, wired or wireless. Others makes no sense.

Simply setup the wireless router completely, LAN, WAN and wireless parts. Then simply connect all the boxes to the router and give it a try.
