    Default Will a Mac use any wifi signal even if the internet service is not compatible with it?
    I have a Mac and a PC. I am planning to change my internet service to another, but the service I want says that it is only compatible with PC's. The question is if I buy a router and hook it up to the modem will the Mac get the WiFi signal and be able to use it regardless of the service??

    Thanks!!

    If you get a new modem that has an Ethernet port on it, you can use your current router. You'll need to power cycle the router to get your new ISP's IP address. Unless you get a USB toggle, any cable/DSL modem should support routing through a router.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
