I have a computer in the home on ME and my husband has one in his garage, upstairs, on XP. The garage is approx. 85 feet away, upstairs. We purchased a 2wire homeportal and wireless through SBC. They did not work. We purchased a Siemens modem and a Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router. Hooked up my computer (the home computer) and it works fine. Tried hooking his up and get nothing. Linksys thinks we are too far away from the home computer. We did hardwire his computer with catagory 5 wiring. Any suggestions?
