Sorry if this is a daft question, but I have no experience of setting up a wireless internet access. My dad is on NTL and he applied for broadband. A guy came round and, instead of doing the usual thing of fitting a broadband modem to the computer and a filter to the telephone socket, he fitted a modem direct to the cable in the living room behind the TV. The problem is the computer is upstairs. The guy said my dad should get a wireless router to connect to the computer. I'll probably get the job of sorting this out. Will it be straightforward? My main worry is how can you set up the router if it is not fitted to a computer at all, but direct to the NTL cable in another room? Any advice would be much appreciated.
