I need to move my computer into the bedroom.. there is an outlet there that needs to be serviced... is it possible to use the Verizon Actiontec Wireless DSL modem/router in its current location and add a wireless card to my computer  without having a seperate computer connected to the router???

If I'm reading your question correctly..........I have good news.

A wireless router does not need to have any wired connections in order to operate.  You can run all connections wireless.


As you indicated, you must have/install a wireless card in your computer.  If you don't feel right about opening your computer, you can use a wireless adaptor that plugs into a USB port on your computer.  You will also need the WEP key to make the initial connection.  The WEP key is a code written on a label attached to the underside of your router.
