Creating a wireless network with a Verizon 9100EM router in Windows XP
A combination home network takes advantage of the cost savings and increased speed of using Ethernet cables to connect the computers that are in close proximity to the router. By using wireless network adapters, it also provides the flexibility of a wireless connection for computers in other rooms or for notebook computers that may be used throughout the home.
Using Ethernet cables to connect computers
Generally, Ethernet cables connect computers to the wireless network if they are in very close proximity to the router.
Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into an Ethernet jack on the back of your Verizon router. You can use any jack that is not being used ( 1 - 4). [Show Me the Ethernet jacks]
Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Network Interface Card (NIC) of the computer you are adding to the network.
