Regarding my router acting like wi-fi
Hello guys, I've got a quick question. Can I use my router which I am connected to through the Ethernet as a Wi-Fi receiver for my computer? Or I need a network card for that directly plugged in to my PC, additionally will I be able to use Mini USB wi-fi adapters to connect to hack/play with Wi-Fi? Or I need a good network card with Wi-Fi for that? Thanks

Depends on your router and pc specs.
Is your router capable of wifi? If there are one to three antennas, it most probably is.
But in any case consult the manual.
Same for your pc. You first need to make sure, that there is wifi capable hardwareYou must always face the curtain with a bow.

If ethernet based wifi adapter you will use, then wifi router must support bridge mode, hence you can act as a receiver.If you use use usb version, you are already a wifi receiver
If you trying to say hotspot mean, you must have hotspot support wifi hardware but these above are valid.
