Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

I want to hook up my computer,copier,and wireless router so I can use my laptop. how do you do it?

Answers :

\015\012To make your home network, connect everything to the router and power up in this order: Router, Desktop, printer and notebook. The router will get its IP address from your ISP and acting like a DHCP server will give IP addresses to each device connected to it. Just make sure the desktopa and notebook are in the same workgroup.
