    PC2 w/ Linksys wireless USB adapter.

    I went with this simple system because we only have two computers. No router was needed with this simple peer to peer setup. PC1 shares it's internet connection (Dialup) and printer. I went with wireless because I didn't want to crawl around under the house running cables.
    Both systems are running XP Home and Zone Alarm Pro.

    John, have a question on your setup. I have gone the router...uhmmm....route (rather redundant!) :)

    I am about to install on parents' 2 PC's and want to sort of map out what I will have to do to connect the two and maintain their dialup.

    Can you be a bit more specific about the connection you set up and which machine has the dialup modem...

    TIA

    MBN

    My setup is a very simple peer to peer network. My coputer is the computer with the internet connection and printer. I installed a PCI wireless network card on my machine and a wireless USB adapter on my son's machine (only becaues he didn't have any open PCI slots). I let windows XP do the network and ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) setup for me, which worked great.
    I chose this method because it was easy to setup and I didn't have to spend alot of money.
    Check out your windows help files.

    Okay, I'm with you on it, one question left....

    taking nothing for granted, the wireless USB adapter was....what? router? I think this is where you have me confused...does XP do routerless wireless?

    One other question for any taker: I now see that "ad-hoc" wireless is available for two or more wireless machines...I wonder if you have a machine with both a nic and a wireless card in it could be part of both the ad-hoc wireless and a router based.

    Helping sister who has 3 pc's and a laptop. Laptop has wireless, and one of the pc's has both wireless and nic card. Could that one PC be a "routered" member as well as a link to the lonely laptop?
