Windows 7: splitter?

21 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit

I checked my posts as I had asked a question similar to this but apparently not the same content sso I feel this is not cross posting.

My daughter has Verizon FIOS and because of her work, needs remote access. She has a modem and WEP and won't move to WPA or WPA 2 due to connectivity issues she will not discuss with me.

I currently have a desktop with a router that I use to connect to my laptop with wirelessly. I have WPA2 with AES etc.

I will soon move in with her and want to keep my configuration as it is.

Must I order a seperate line from Verizon or can I use a splitter off her modem so I can do at her house what I do home, and both parties be able to function?

If the ethernet splitter at the modem with an ethernet cable went to my desktop, I could utilize the router[all on my side of the switch]. Then with the router on, I could receive a signal to my laptop.

Concurrently, she[on the other side of the ethernet splitter] would connect her cable directly to her pc as she does now and all devices in her network would also function.

All iPads and laptops of hers would pick up both signals but only be able to enter her network.

I could work within my netwok with my 2 pcs.

To save you a lot of typing, the answer is probably I need to either join her inept network or get a new line from Verizon. I am just taking a shot in the dark, just in case.
I am not very skilled with routers so cannot become too create with it.
Thank you for listening
