Windows 7: Help Me Set Up Wireless and Wired Network on New House

Thanks guys! So where exactly do I put the router in that PS3 room

The glass is a 8mm Blindex glass, no metal I think.
The wall has a little bit of metal structure.
My internet speed will be 3.2 or 8Mbps.

Please edit the picture with the router in, thanks again!

This is what I suggested before:

The router is normally placed near the DSL modem so try and have the DSL installed when the router can be centrally placed in the heavy coverage area. If you can get CAT5e run from the router to the PS3 and Wii that will provide the best performance for them.

Still a good idea....

Yes I can put cable on the PS3 but not the Wii, let me ask you a question:
The DIR-855 have WAN port why do I need a DSL modem can't I just connect the RG-11 cable in the DIR

Please, edit the picture with the router in

Thank you again.

The DIR isn't a DSL router so it can't terminate the DSL connection. That's what the DSL modem does. The modem basically takes the DSL (RJ11) as input and outputs an Ethernet connection (RJ45) that you feed to the routers WAN port.

Why can't you run a cable to the PS3? I seem to remember you saying it had a GigE ethernet port.

I can, I can run a cable to the PS3, but not the Wii, understand?
So, why the router have a RG-11 port? If I need to have a modem anyway.
I will put the DSL-500B with the DIR-855 if needed.

The question still remain, where exactly do I put the router at the PS3 room?

Edit: I forgot to say thanks! Thank you!

The DIR-855 doesn't have an RJ11 for DSL. Just RJ45's for ethernet.

Ok, I got it. The Wii needs a USB adapter. You'll have to get one that is supported by the Wii. You just can't go and buy any adapter. It has to work with the Wii.

BTW: You're welcome!

The router should go on a desk (Good), or shelf (Better). What ever you do: Not on the floor! You want good wireless signal so place it somewhere where the antennas are in the clear. Wireless likes open space.

This is a WAN port right? I can't understand why do I need a DSL modem?


I will put the router on a shelf or desk ok?
Can you show me a link with a Wii Wireless N adapter?

The DWA-160 adapters are for the notebooks, not for the Wii.

Is this a good place for the router? Please show me where.

Edit: My sister say right now to my mother: I love you mom! So cute!

Maybe I missed something. Do you need to Wii to connect to the network or is it just by itself?

WAN = Wide Area Network. That's the port on the router that connects to the RJ45 port on DSL modem. The modem will have two ports: RJ11 for the DSL and RJ45 for the router. You need the DSL modem to "convert" the DSL to ethernet.

I don't have the picture at the moment so I can't edit it for router placement.

Like I said before:

The router is normally placed near the DSL modem so try and have the DSL installed where the router will give the best signal for your laptops. That means where you want the best coverage.

Here is the photo (the clear one).


Here is what I whink would be nice, what do you think?


And about the modem, Deee, I know about the WAN port, hehe, I was just confused with all this, my mistake sorry.

I will put the DSL-500B with the DIR-855, is that ok?

I want the Wii just for play online games, I will streaming content with the PS3!
Thank you again! You are awesome man!
