Mary, at one time (certainly this was something mentioned when I set up my PC and Xbox back in 2009) the wisdom was ‘You should have a router because it has its own hardware firewall, which is more secure than the software firewall provided with Windows.’ I was doing some googling, and you can still find people giving this advice, but most of the articles I found made no mention of this aspect. They described how to do exactly what you did – that is, to have a PC with internet access provided by either a wired or wireless (ie cell phone) telephone connection, and acting as a server for other devices on its local area network. This network can either be wired (as I did with my Xbox) or wireless. I ASSUME it costs more if you use your cell phone provider for internet access, but since I don’t have a smartphone I don’t know. But from a technical point of view it all amounts to the same thing.
And I set it up so it requires a password, so I'm guessing it's at least somewhat secure.
Huh. I've never used my computer as a hotspot...didn't know it was possible! I use my phone as one all the time. I would think if you're a getting signal for your other devices, why would you need a router...I mean, isn't that what it's for? Unless using it as a hotspot makes it less secure, or something.
I have no idea about the Wi-Fi aspect, because I have no need for any wireless devices, but I can tell you that before I had a router I configured my PC so my Xbox 360 (which required an internet connection) could get wired internet access. In other words, I added my Xbox to my PC’s local network via an Ethernet cable. I wouldn’t exactly say it was acting as a router, but it replaced a router. The downside was that I had to have my PC turned on if I wanted to use my Xbox, whereas if I’d had a router, only the router would have required power. This is something I assume will also apply to you.
Since it might not be clear from the post, I have the physical internet cable that the Lighttube people installed plugged into the cable hole on my computer and that's how I get it online to turn it into a hot spot.
Meh. I'm not responding further, and he hasn't asked anything else. I did email him a copy of our latest medical bill for Aaron :D (Nearly $600 for those two ER visits...and that is just the hospital fee. I'm sure the doctor's group will be sending a separate bill).
My mom tried to make me a right-y by switching spoons and crayons to my right, but I wasn't having it. Now I really only write with my left hand. Everything else I learned to do right handed. It's just not a left-y world.
