ME102 Wireless Access Point

Chaps,

First post here - go easy on the noob!

I have a plus.net account, and am very happy with it. I have the standard-issue Voyager 205 router/modem, and am thinking about going wireless.

I have a desktop computer which is plugged into the ethernet connection on the router, and a laptop which is plugged into the USB port.

If I was to buy a Netgear ME102 wireless access point (which have have recommended to me as being cheap but good), could I simply plug it into my Voyager modem and run like that? I would want to keep the computer on an ethernet port, therefore could I run the ME102 from the USB port, or would I need to buy a hub or a switch or something to split the ethernet port on the voyager modem?

I am aware that the ME102 only runs the b-standard wireless networking (rather than the g-standard), so will be slower, but my laptop will only work on the b-standard anyway, so no loss.

All help gratefully recieved!


Oli.

ME102 Wireless Access Point

I had problems connecting everywhere I wanted to in the house but a Belkin Pre-N router sorted that easily, it massively increases range even if you have bog standard wireless on your laptop-- mind you they're quite pricey! :roll:

Hello,

Welcome to the forums. I'm moving this to the Computers and Hardware forum where you will hopefully get some help before it drops off the end of the page.
