    This is my firt post in the "Networking" section:D

    Lets say i have a PC and another Hp pavilion portable.And lets say that had a Dell router with me with a DSL and USB cable included.If i Connected the router to my Pc and everything was working fine,would my portable (if i looked) automaticaly detect the wireless router on my PC or would i have to take specific measures to fix it all?

    If theres measures to be taken..would someone inform me and please provide a (if possible) walkthorugh through all this?


    Thanks for helping!

    I' ve never used a DELL router.
    Normally you would connect a wireless router to your PC with an ethernet connection and the wireless would connect (once enabled) to any compuiters in range. The way this is setup depends on the specific products being used.
    Do you actually have these products?

    I guess a make/model of the Dell router would be useful. I presume this is a wireless router, right? If the wireless section has been enabled, you should be able to see it from the wireless laptop.
