My computer is currently connected to the modem? thing in my basement. There is also another one beside it but I believe that is for the tv/phone. I was given a Trendnet wireless N home router. For the life of me I cannot figure out what to plug into what. I don't really know what I am doing so if anyone can explain it to me I would appreciate it. I was hoping to leave the desktop directly connected and just have wifi for my ipad...if that's even possible.
