Wi Fi

Do you always have to have your wireless modem plugged into your computer,if you were just using a tablet and had no computer but had the wireless modem how does it work.

You don't need a computer to use a wireless router.

although a computer is useful for troubleshooting wireless/connectivity issues since you can plug in directly and configure modem, which is not possible with wireless only devices.

It depends on the modem, mine lets me configure over wifi

do you just plug the router into phone plug and power.

WiFi is the most temperamental crap ever invented.
Sometimes it connects then nek minit it is not.

Really? Must be your gear or settings. Ours is faultless, 27/7, never misses a beat.

Same here, I think we have done 2 restarts of the router in the past year.

You've jinxed yourself now.

That's ok, it's not me uses it mostly so I can manage without ;-)

Something's wrong with your equipment. With reliable gear, you should get 24/7 uninterrupted Wifi.
