I'm going to be moving in the next month. The new residence will have Wi-Fi available. My current network setup involves:
- desktop PC (wired)
- laptop PC (wireless)
- printer (wired, can be USB or wireless)
- NAS (wired)
The modem is one provided by my ISP, the router is a D-Link WBR 1310.
If I use the provided Wi-Fi at my new location, is there a way my router can use the wireless signal to serve my computers, printer, and NAS?
(It may be possible for me to keep my own Internet service, but at the new location, which I believe would nullify the issue, I need to investigate that idea.)
UPDATE: I appreciate the responses so far. I'm not much on network terminology or technology, so having this assistance available is great. I'll add some clarifying remarks here:
- I'll be a tenant in a house, the owners use passworded Wi-Fi and will give me access. I don't imagine it will be heavily loaded.
- My laptop has a wireless card, so that's not an issue. It has been suggested to get a Wi-Fi dongle for the desktop. That would be the simplest solution, but I have a network printer and a NAS that need to be connected via router.
- Using Wi-Fi on my laptop would be ideal, but I can compromise on that and use just wired connections to my router, if that makes a difference.
- I'm willing to purchase a new router if that would be the best solution, and not too expensive.
- It may be possible for me to use my own Internet service at the new location, which I believe would be the simplest and best solution. I need to discuss with the landlord.
