Create home network with wired AND wireless

August 20, 2010 at 08:45:35
Specs: Windows XP
I have a dekstop and a laptop at home and I want to know if I can create a home network where the desktop has a wired connection and the laptop a wireless one. I have a cable modem and a wireless router/access point. The desktop pc is currently connected to the wireless router, which is connected to the cable modem. If there is a way to accomplish the mixed network I would be grateful if someone could explain to me how to do it, or at least point me to the right direction (as in some kind of online guide or something).

I forgot to mention that the desktop pc is currently running Windows XP SP3 and the laptop XP SP2.

It's common setup on wireless router. As long as you have configured wireless router correctly, you can then connect computer to wireless router's LAN port with network cable and laptop to wireless network without cabling. If they're connected successfully, both computer and laptop can communicated with each other. This is an example of setting up wireless network, you can take a look.

Hope this helps.
