Now having two laptops in my home, I felt it's time to update from my old hardwired modem to wireless. I have a "ZyXEL Communications Corporation" wireless unit supplied by Telus (a Canadian telephone company) currently connected by a cable to this laptop. Telus and their staff assist their customers promptly if they use windows or mac
. I don't having been a Linux user for the past 8 years and Mint since Helena (if I recall her name correctly). In speaking with a representative from Telus, I was instructed to do what the forums suggest. It does not appear that anyone has mentioned setting up wireless modems to Canadian phone companies (or I haven't looked in the right place...).
The modem works great as is (currently hardwired to my Acer 5250 laptop). Hardwired to my Asus something laptop, it works great too but so did my hardwired modem. I don't have enough cable to string through the house and properly to stay connected...
Could someone please point me to where I can find out how a non-technical user can connect my two laptops to this modem and become wireless? I haven't discovered anything in Nadia's menu that offers what I need or haven't looked in the right place. Obviously, Mint 13 is running on my laptops -- Mate to be specific.
Where should I be looking and (hopefully) will it be easy to set up?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Southern Alberta, Canada, eh!
