Hooking Up Someone Else's Wireless Router
A relative of mine had her ex drop by for a week (in his motorhome). He wants to be able to access the internet on his laptop and he brought his own wireless router with him. But he doesn't know much about how to connect things, so I've been asked to do it. (I guess they still don't know why I picked the username I did. ;-) )
Anyway, question: since this is a router he had already been using in his home, is it simply a matter of hooking the thing up to the cable modem my aunt has ? Or must we/I go through the whole set-up procedure (with whatever codes & passwords might be necessary) as if starting from scratch ? IOW, I don't know if the router has somehow saved the information and only needs to be installed, or if it must all be done from the beginning.
Also, can my aunt somehow still have her own laptop connected to the modem by the cable (i.e. "wired") while the other laptop outside uses the wireless router ?
Thanks for any comments ! :-)
