        Answer

        No. It just allows all your wireless devices to speak to your cable modem.

        Will this work on a desktop with a wired network connection   (11 Answers)

        I am looking to connect a desktop to wireless printers and also a wireless tv monitor adapter. The desktop already has a wired ethernet connection to the network that I need to keep active. Can you tell me if these two devices can be active at the same time and not cause problems. Thank you.

          Yes. Multiple wireless devices will work in the same vicinity and off of the same computer.

            No, it is not -- this wireless network adapter requires either Windows XP or Vista.

            Answer

            Depends on how much a new wireless card would cost. I'd shop around. Better to have something internal, as this sticks out and will inevitably get bumped, which could damage the USB socket on your laptop.

                  No, you still have to have a internet provider. This just makes your computer WiFi capable.
