    Here goes a really dumb question but am doing it anyway. If I network 2 pc's wirelessly, if one goes down as in CRASH, does that affect the other one? Will the other one still run and beyond that, will it be able to connect to internet. thanks very much.

    One computer will not affect the other. If one goes down and you have shared files on it, of course, then, the working one won't have access to those shared files. Other than that, the working one should still be able to connect to the internet.
