Creating different networks on one cable ISP

July 7, 2010 at 08:42:00
Specs: Windows XP
I just moved into a duplex and the people I'm
renting from have Cox and have graciously
allowed me access to their wireless network.
The problem is that their signal strength is usually
very low, and sometimes I can't connect at all,
and when I can I usually only get around 1-2
Mbps up or down. I also have a number of
devices that can't connect wirelessly, so at
this point I'd really like to set up a wired
network for us. Can I just simply buy a cable
modem and router, or will that not work?

That would only work if you brought in your own ISP service.

You could just get the router and then run a wire from their router to yours. That would work.

Thanks for your quick response.

I was hoping to avoid paying for an ISP. Trying to save money
and keep our utilities to a minimum.

Unfortunately running a wire is not an option.

Consider putting in a wireless bridge.

You would start by web searching wireless bridge
Then once you understand what its about you would purchase a wireless bridge.
Then you would install and configure the wireless bridge.
Then you would connect your computers.
