FiOS Internet

Adding a computer to an established FiOS wireless network
If you purchase a new computer or bring a laptop home from work, you will likely want to add it to your existing wireless home network. You may also want to connect your laptop to a Wi-Fi hotspot or to a wireless network in a motel when traveling.

If you have Verizon's In-Home Agent, adding a computer to your wireless home network is easy. You can either attach it to your network with an Ethernet cable and run In-Home Agent. If you have a USB thumb drive, it's easy to transfer your network settings to your new computer.

    Note: Your network must have at least one computer connected to it and you must be able to access the Internet before you can connect additional computers.

  • Yes, it has a wireless adapter installed.

  • No, it doesn't have a wireless adapter installed.

  • I don't know. How can I find out if a wireless adapter is installed?
