I'm hoping that someone here can help me. I have a retail store that moves weekly from location to location in the same way that craft fairs and county fair retailers change location. The host location provides free internet access for credit card approvals and all other needs, and I have no problem accessing that wireless feature.
We have five laptop with point of sale software. One has the software with the customer database, stock list and inventory levels. The others connect to that program and database via a Zdrive intranet connection.
Here's the problem. We have been using the wireless capabilities of the laptops to communicate with each other to access the point of sale software, but it is slow and unreliable. The laptops are all on a single counter, and are close enough to one another to be connected to a router via ethernet cables.
So...... can I set this up to continue tapping into the provided wireless internet, but also have a wired intranet? Will it work?
If so, what kind of router do I need and is this a simple or easy task? (While I'm not necessarily skilled enough to set this up myself, I do have someone who can help me with it.)
I thank you in advance for your help.
