Help With Wireless Network Equipment.

  Ali M 15:22 04 Jan 2004

Am looking to set up a wireless network in my friends house. They have 3 pc's 2 on xp and 1 on W98. One pc has a LAN adaptor connected to an NTL Set-top box. Want all 3 to share this internet connection. PC 1 will always be on and connected to the internet so don't really need a router. I know that pc's 2 and 3 will need a wirless network card each, will pc 1 just need a wireless access point and will the USB give a decent performance.

Otherwise could PC1 connect to a wireless router by cable and PC 2&3 connect to the router with wireless cards, will this still act as a proper LAN or will it just share the internet connection.

If you have the Feb 2004 issue no 102 of pca go to page 114 titled "home is where the network is" 5 pages worth, that's asumming you buy or subscribe to pca.

Hope this is some help...good luck bretsky;0)
