Hi David. Just get another ethernet cable and connect it to one of the available ethernet ports of the NVG510 and wire your second computer to it.

If your second computer will be placed in another room, you can go wireless on it.

Care to describe what this second computer is? Desktop? Laptop? Will be placed in another room? Wired or wireless preferred?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your response. We have a desktop connected to the NVG, and a laptop in another room. Our preference is to keep it as cheap and simple as possible. So should we go with wireless or a very long ethernet cable?

Wireless will be most practical if it's a laptop.

Although reliability is not as good as with a wired connection, wireless will give you the freedom to connect on any part of the house. Even at your backyard, if the wireless signal allows it.

Just look at your NVG 510. Look for the Wireless name (SSID) and Wireless password (Wireless Network Key).

Let us know here if you need further assistance with wireless connections.

Also, this may help out if you need a visual picture of where to find the SSID and Wireless Password:

How's it going, David? Have you added a new computer wirelessly to your home network now? Smiley Happy
