  skenth 14:11 04 Jul 2003


I have three PC's at home and wish to network them, therefore I need some advice on what I need to do to setup a wireless network.
1. what equipment I need and what each piece of equipment does.
2. Is configuration of the LAN the same a traditional wire Cat 5 LAN?

1. You need a wireless network card for each PC. They can be set up as an ad-hoc, peer-to-peer network, and they will all be able to see each other's files, share printers etc.

If you want them to be able to share a broadband internet access, I recommend a wireless router - Netgear or D-Link.

2. Yes
