Nightmare Trying To Get Wi-Fi Hotspot. Help needed.
I live in Florida and have Brighthouse/Earthlink high speed cable for my 2 year old Apple iMac.
Next week, my wife will be bringing home an iPad 2, 16 GB, Wi-Fi, she got as a gift. So naturally, I want to set up a Wi-Fi hot spot in my home to accommodate the iPad. Brighthouse tells me the wireless routers they use only work with their Road Runner internet service, not the Earthlink service. (Groan!) I asked if I change to Road Runner, would the router work with my iMac, and they don't seem to know.
I got so disgusted with them, I was about to order Verizon Fios with router, but found in the small print that the router is only good with Windows PC's!
I never thought an iPad would be a home wrecker!
Any suggestions as to what I should do to get a Wi-Fi setup in my home for my iMac desktop and iPad?
Thanks for the help!
