Setup your New PC or Notebook to your Wireless Router Modem for Internet

Please ensure you have the necessary equipment such as:

Broadband Internet connection and Modem: A broadband Internet connection is a high-speed Internet connection provided by your Telco. If you have an Internet Service at home it is a common practice for the provider to supply a Broadband Modem / Router.

Wireless Router: This may be required if your Modem Router doesn't have Wireless Capability. A router sends info between your network and the Internet. With a wireless router, you can connect PCs to your network using radio signals instead of wires.

Wireless Network Adapter: A wireless network adapter is a device that connects your PC / Notebook to a wireless network. To connect your portable or desktop PC to your wireless network, the PC must have a wireless network adapter. Most laptops and tablets—and some desktop PCs—come with a wireless network adapter already installed. If you have purchased a custom built desktop please ensure that you did purchase a Wireless Network Adapter.

Wireless Antenna (Desktop PC Only): If you have purchased a Custom Desktop PC - please ensure the Antenna's are screwed firmly on the back of the Network Adapter Card otherwise you will get no radio signals.
