Checkout the Linksys support website and also their
education website for info. This link refers to a
wired router. Not as convenient as wireless but faster and cheaper click here
also note the reference to AOL Broadband.

Go and buy 2 wireless USB or PCI cards Install and set all Pc's to the same workgroup name and everting else to auto. On the downstairs PC set the internet connection to share. On the upstairs Pc set the connection tab on IE to connect via LAN.

Please set WEP encryption on both with the same key, that will stop others using your connection.

If you need to know more contact me direct.
