“it seems you are confused on so many different ways.”
You nailed it!
That is exactly I do feel!
“For this model, you will always need a cable to connect it to the router/switch.”
My ZyXEL wlan router is 10/100,
but my HP laptop has 1 Gb Ethernet, like MBL has.
Switch you write about, would it cost a lot?
More than a new gigabit router?
"Now, IF it is connected to a router/switch which has wireless capabilities,
that just means all those machines with wireless capabilities, will be able to see the MBL."
Ok, I quess I understand this now
and will not try to unplug Ethernet wire from my MBL
and hope it would work wireless with my router.
But I truly thought, it would work wireless, like my laptop does!
Just cannot understand why MBL could not work wireless like laptop does…
At the moment photos are saved to MBL but the speed is very slow, 4,41 mb/sec.
I added ethernet wire from laptop to router,
so now all three devises are plugged with Ethernet wires,
but still the speed is as slow.
Before buying this MBL I was told that while my laptop has gigabit Ethernet
it would be quick to transfer data from and to MBL.
What should I do to reach better speed?
