i live in an apartment bldg that offers wi-fi only. my laptop automatically shows the available connections to choose from. my desktop does not. i bought a wireless router but still do not have my connection options showing on my desktop. do i need a modem (remember i do not have cable or DSL internet to connect to, only the wi-fi) or am I connecting the router wrong? the router directions state to connect to a modem but also say its ok not to have a modem. i always thought the modem had to be connected to a cable or dsl connection. thank you for any help!!
