    If your DSL has a wireless hub, (router) and your OS is running XP, then once you turn on your laptop, it should automatically find the wireless network.

    You will need to install a wireless router connected to the DSL modem. The desktop will plug back into the router. The wireless tablet will need to be set up to establish a wireless connection to the router.

  • Depends on your Modem/Gateway/Router type... Does it transmit wireless? I can help you figure out a network that will work best for you I just need to know what hardware (network adapters, wireless or ethernet, modem/gateway/router type, etc.) I build networks daily at work. Just let me know.
