  1. if you can connect through a wire id think your fine, but if your going wireless then you need a router

  2. There are two types of routers: wired and wireless! A router lets you share your internet connection among several devices i.e. PC and game console! So if you have a decent broadband connection, you could play games on your console and someone else could be on the PC simultaneously!

    Troubleshooting you internet connection!

    * Check that the Ethernet cable is securely connected.

    * Check that the network settings are correct. Refer to the instructions supplied by your internet service provider or in the software manual to make the correct network settings. The user is responsible for Internet service fees.

    * Make sure you have a broadband connection to the internet. Dial-up connectivity is not supported.

    * Use only an Ethernet cable compatible with 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T networks. Do not use a cord for a standard residential telephone line or cables of types other than those mentioned here. Using the wrong type of cord or cable can cause more electrical current than necessary to flow through the LAN connector, which may lead to heat build-up, fire or malfunction.

    * Check that you are authorized to use the access point. Only connect to access points that you are authorized to use.
