Ethernet mixed Macs/PC

New house wired with twisted pair ethernet cable (high quality.)

Now: What equipment do I need to build an ethernet network between the following computers housed in separate/connected rooms of the house?  PowerTowerPro 225, two iMacs, one G3 powerbook 300, one Compac PC running Windows 95?

I want to manage the kid's two iMacs from my PowerTower Pro or with an old Mac 7500. I also want to provide internet access for all with one access number if possible. Two numbers at the outside.

Experts, your advice is golden!

Install Windows NT 4.0 with RRAS. Windows 95 isn't very good for Macintosh.

If you only want to connect Windows 95 with MAC (no internet access) use MacLan95 From Miramar Systems.

We need to get the system running with existing Windows 95 on the PC for business reasons. Right now I need the hardware questions answered.

Thank you.

Please see the original question. I need to know what to put between these machines and the wires in the walls.

To connect the computers together you need ethernet cards in both macs and pc's. Most macs come with network cards. You need a hub to connect each computer to.

To connect to the internet you need a ISDN or 56K modem and a bunch of software to create an intranet and a connection to the internet.

Please see the 3com website for a lot more information.

To manage other machines from your PC you can use timbukto
To access mac servers from a PC you can install copstalk 2.5

Thank you. The only question I still need answered is this:
Do I need one hub for each computer? Is that correct?

No you need only one hub!
