But will that still enable the wired computer I am disconnecting to continue to work? (If I reconnect the comptuer back into one of the wired ports on the back of the router?) Will that allow both the existing desktop and the laptop to work as well?
As I said, 4 people share this machine now, I dont want to take it off line, I just want to add my note book to the network.
I know I sound dense, that's because I am.
I did some more digging in the back office today, and found that the whole system is really a wireless system. But instead of going wireless into the existing computers, they used wired connections, and just use the wireless connection from our office across the street for the main wireless connection. So it comes into the building wireless, goes though a wireless switch of some kind, then into the router now and out via wired connections to the offices that have computers. It is a cisco set up, but all of the ports are in use.
Thanks again for your time.
