How do you use a router in your home?

I want to install a router so that more of us can be on the computer at the same time.

The router should have one input for your main input, and then the outputs should go to each of your computers. If you buy one it will have instructions.

Using a router in your home is easy. Simply plug all computer up to the router or connect via wireless card. You can use the router for sharing an internet connection. To do this simply plug your internet modem into the router. You can also share a printer and files by turning network sharing on.

Most routers designed for home use have 5 ports. One port will be offset from the others and labelled "WAN". Connect your cable modem or DSL modem into this port with an Ethernet cable. Connect each computer you want to have internet access to the remaining ports.

Buy one from walmart. buy enough network cords for all computers or get a wireless router if you have wireless computers. Stick the installation cdrom in one of your computers and simply go through the prompts. it will tell you what to do each step of the way.

Well basically a router is used to divide an internet connection. The cable from the modem goes into the router and cables are then run from it to each pc.

You need to follow the instructions that came with your router in order to install it. Then you need to make sure that you have wireless cards in each computer.
