wireless networking

Excuse my ignorance -I am new to this game
My daughters each have an Apple Ibook and want to create a wireless network by sharing my Evesham desktop broadband connection.
Is this possible and what do I need?

others will know the answer, I've no experience of Apples ; but if the daughters' were not Apples (if you see what I mean!) there would be no problem at all and lots of threads in this forum to help you. Such as the following which is a recent one click here
Type "wireless networking" into the "search forum" box on the right at the top of this forum and you'll find it's a frequent question.

The fact that your daughters are using Apple computers shouldn't make any difference. The thread that "palinka" has linked to above includes a copy of my standard "blurb" on Wireless Networking and I would suggest that you go with the "Router" option rather than mixing PC and Mac in an "Ad Hoc" wireless network.
