Turning Cable Internet into Wi-Fi
Hello every one,
I have only just registered at this forum. I have a question which I wish someone here would be able to answer. I have been using cable internet for some time now. I have one Wi-fi device which I don't use any longer but I was wondering whether I can connect my cable internet with the Wi-Fi device to sort of use it as as Wi-Fi connection?
If you have a wireless router, yes. They have special hardware which lets them as an access point. Other devices can use the signal managed by that AP but they themselves cannot (with very few exceptions) become their own APs.
Thanks for ur reply. I have TP-Link TL-WR720N device.

the blue port? It looks like it's labelled beneath - probably "in" or "wan".

I have normal cabled internet connected with Ethernet port RJ45
What I did, was install Netgear Wireless, and connect the Ethernet RJ45 with this, it became wireless and runs fine with Netgear Adapter
