Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I was given a "Wireless-N Home Router Model #WRT150N as a gift. I have an Aser Aspire 7520-5971 laptop. I have arrange for Road Runner service to my home to which I plan to use the above defined router. Do you see any problems using the combination? Also do you have any suggestions or things I should know to make the installation easier? The Router was purchased from Circuit City on 10/15/07. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for your help, Chuck Wilke

Hi Chuck,
Sounds like you got a pretty nice Linksys router, and I don't see any compatibility issues for it's use with Road Runner's modem or your computers that will connect to it. Your router came with an installation guide with step by step diagrams and if you follow the directions you should be just fine.
Note that the "N" router will work with previous/slower WiFi such as wireless "B" & "G", but if you want computers on this network to utilize the speed that the "N" router provides they will have to have "N" cards or dongles.
I hope this helps, and Good luck.
