Solved how do I add wireless router to my hard wired

Specs: Windows Vista
We have three hard wired computers and use a Syswan Duolinks SW24 Series Router. I just purchased an HP Tablet, which requires a wireless connection. Is there any way to make this work?

You need to buy a "wireless" router and use that instead of the Syswan router.

The wireless router allows you to connect to the internet both wired and wirelessly.

Thanks, but we are very committed to the Syswan router. We will be getting a wireless router we can add to it instead of replacing it.

✔ Best Answer
You can either buy a wireless access point (AP) or another router that's wireless capable.

I would go with whichever is less expensive. In either case, you would plug the AP or router into a LAN port on your existing router.

If you go with the router, you might find it's less expensive and you can get one with 4 LAN ports to ensure you have enough of those for wired connections, you'll want to click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second Router to your LAN

It will explain how to correctly add a second router to your existing one. You'll want to use the version where you connect the two routers LAN port to LAN port and keep everything in a single subnet.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
