    Question connecting laptop to WA1003A bsnl modem already conneted via ethernet to desktop

    sir,

    I have BSNL Huawei Quidway WA1003A (type II modem) router connected to desktop (windows xp sp3) via Ethernet (RJ45 jack) with the connection type PPPoE. Now i bought dell laptop (windows7 64 bit home basic) with built-in Dell Wireless 1501 802.11b/g/n Half Mini Card. I want to connect my laptop to the same router as wireless, without affecting the desktop internet setup.

    Kindly guide me for wireless connectivity configuration at both ends (including security settings), i.e. modem and laptop.

    will there be any conflict arise due to existing of two different operating systems in both pcs (i.e. win xp 32 bit and win7 64 bit)

    Thanks in advance

    krishnan

    Hi,

    I had the same modem earlier.

    I have posted an answer for a very similar query on the link given below:

    Please check it out.


    No problem should arise due to the difference in operating systems. You may use WPA encryption as that is the highest supported by this particular modem.
