Setting up a WIRELESS Network

  Dirty Dick 15:36 06 May 2004

I currently have 3 PCs, One running Windows XP Pro, and the others 98SE. I am just about to get a Laptop. I want to be able to Network all four around the house. What kind of equipment must I get to run a WIRELESS network? I have BT Broadband and I have heard that this could cause a problem? I want to able to connect to the Internet from any and all the PCs. Can anyone help?

Set my uncles network up with the following (Combination of XP Home, XP Pro and 98 SE)

Netgear DG834G all-in-one modem/router/wireless/firewall
with desktop and latop plumbed in via CAT5e cable.
Laptop running 98se connected wirelessly using WAG511 CardBus Network adapter.
Laptop running xp pro connected using centrino

DG834G plugged into the phone socket (having first put filters on all sockets) Plug the desktop and one of the laptops into DG834G using CAT5 cable and the network port. One of the laptops is a centrino (so just a case of setting it up to work) The last laptop connected via wireless card WAG511

Works a treat! click here for some very good prices on DG834G (£100 inc one wireless adapter) If not good prices on other branded wireless products.

Post back if you have further queries
