    Router problem


    I have Comcast internet I have the modem and I router hooked to the modem do I have to have a wire connected from the router to a PC all the time, if I want to connect devices to the WiFi, I don't use the PC but if I disconnect the hardwire from the PC that hooks to router I no longer can get on WiFi with other devices.

    Can we assume that the router has the wifi hardware?

    No, you should not need a wired connection in order for the wifi router to work. The router, however, does need to be connected to the modem.
