Connecting additional computers to your home network

Creating a wireless network with an Actiontec GT704WG gateway in Windows XP

There are two options for connecting additional computers to your Actiontec network.
  1. Create a completely wireless network by installing and configuring wireless network adapters for each computer.


  2. Create a combination network by connecting any computers that are in close proximity of your router with Ethernet cable, and installing wireless network adapters only for notebook computers or computers that are farther away from the router.


Review the advantages that each type of connection provides to determine the best solution for your situation.

Completely Wireless Home Network
  • No wires to clutter your work space
  • Provides the most flexibility, especially for notebook computers
  • Requires purchasing a wireless network adapter for each additional computer


Note: Many newer notebook computers have built-in wireless network cards. Be sure to check for an installed NIC to see if your computer already has a wireless network adapter.

Combination Home Network
  • Faster data flow and more security from hackers for the computers connected by Ethernet cable
  • Less expensive. Computers close to the router and connected by Ethernet cable use a network interface card that is much less expensive than a wireless network adapter
  • Easier installation for computers connected by Ethernet cable


Connect additional computers by selecting either a Completely Wireless or a Combination Network.
