Setting up a network over the internet

  domtheboy 13:47 22 Oct 2004

Hi all

I want to find out if it is possible for me and my bro to network our PC's. His is running Windows 98, mine Windows XP SP2.

We live at two separate addresses roughly 4 miles apart. We both have access to a broadband connection. Can anyone tell me where I would need to start (if a network is at all possible ?)

Thanks very much in advance !!!

I think this really depends on what you want to use the network for. Would it be for file transfer, or, gaming?

H recap

Primarily for file transfer, but gaming would be a distinct possibility as well.
