Specs: windows 8
The operating system on my desktop computer is 'Windows 8' and my connection to the internet is via an Ethernet cable. I now need to change this connection to 'wireless' so that I can use my tablet. How do I do this??

✔ Best Answer
Carry on using the internet on your desktop PC as you are doing now (ie via an ethernet connection) since ethernet is more reliable than wireless (and faster).

If your existing router or modem is not a wireless one, you need to buy a wireless router and modem combined in a single unit. Disconnect existing router/modem and set up your new wireless one in it's place.

Plug your desktop PC into the ethernet port on your new wireless router. Make sure you have an internet connection on your desktop PC and it's all working properly.

Now you can connect your tablet wirelessly to your new wireless router.
