Hi I have a Netgear DG834 wireless router downstairs and both my PCs are upstairs. At the moment they are both connected using the WiFi but sometimes I need to transfer large amounts of data from one computer to the other, I was thinking would it be possible to have one computer on the WiFI and then connect both the computers with a crossover cable. If it is would I still be able to use both computers on the Internet, would there be any major problems. Apart from removing the wireless card from one of the computers what else would I need to do. If this worked I was thinking of adding a 10/100/1000 Ethernet card to both computers. I would appreciate any help. Thanks
I did have the router upstairs at one time but I had more problems with extension leads, since moving the router downstairs and connecting straight to the BT box I do not get any more problems and my download speed has been increased. I am not to sure how to set the wired computer up to receive the Internet, if you see what I mean.
