  1. Hi all!

    I trying to connect a pc to an existing LAN hub with no cables (see the pic). But I don't know how to proceed. Any idea?

    ok! thank you! I should read that before! but now I am wondering what device should I buy.

    In this scheme: http://www.techspot.com/articles/networking101/router-with-hub-ap.gif

    the wireless access point is connected to the hub. But the vendors I visited don't said it clearly. What device should I buy to connect it to the hub?

    thanks!

    you need to install a Wireless Network Access Point like the Linksys WAP11. This plugs in your hub. Then you use the wireless PCI-card in your desktop to receive the signal from the WAP.

    see here for more info:

    Look around on the web for faster/other cards if you like.

    Then forget about wireless. Just buy a cheapo NIC (ethernet network card) and a straight connecting cable. Costs about $20
