Replacing Wireless Router
Posted on 2007-09-27
Hello. I currently use a wireless router that only shares the signal with one other pc. It's a Netgear MR814v2tw, which, I think, was made specifically for an old UK ISP called Telewest; hence the tw.
It works fine, but I want now to send the signal to an additional pc, a laptop, and am told I need a WGR614. That's fine, but I'm concerned about uninstallation and re-configuration.
Can you please tell me - simple language greatly appreciated - whether (1) I can just swop the routers and, as it were, plug and play, or (2) would I need to install the new router, as it were, over the existing set-up, or (3) would I need to uninstall the existing set-up and reinstall the new router?
I'm mainly worried about any uninstallation losing the signal to the (currently) secondary pc (a desktop) and then having problems installing the new one. My daughter would give me grief!
