    Hello all,

    I have one wireless connection on one pc at home and i am trying to share
    it with another two pcs all connected via ethernet (hub) so what is the easiest way to
    set this up and i wonder if my connection speed is 256 kb will it be enough for the 3 machines to open messengers and check mail all at the same time ?
    I have win xp sp3

    I appreciate any help

    thank you

    Well, as long as you're patient it'll probably do. :D

    Is that wireless connection to a wireless router? If so, you simply bridge the wireless and wired connections in the one machine and connect the wired port to that switch. The other machines connected to the switch will have access to the router as long as that wireless machine is running.
