All I want to do is give internet access to a second, static PC on the first floor so both it and the ground floor static PC can access the internet at the same time. I've searched google but I'm just getting brain addled by the information I'm reading.
Please can someone point me in the direction of a simple, idiot proof guide?
I ask this on the assumption that I don't have to replace my orindary wires with ethernet wires (the long ones that currently run from my first floor PC and ground floor PC to the phone socket. I guess if I need to do that I have to look at wireless.
Unless I'm being really stupid.... The first option says I can put a wireless network adaptor card in both and go from there - no router or new modems required! Please can you confirm I've read that right?
You can set up an "Ad Hoc" wireless network in which both computers have a Wireless Network Adapter installed and they then communicate directly (no router). Internet Connection Sharing is then enabled in the "Host" PC which has the actual internet connection (modem connection) and the "Client" PC will have internet access provided the Host is running and is online.
