Okay, here's the situation. I have a win98 desktop set up with DSL installed with an internal modem. I want to set up a simple home network so I can run wire to another room and plug in my my laptop running win2000. Could someone walk me through the very basic steps to setting something up with the minimum amount of equipment, and let me know if there would be any issues with running 40 feet of cable to hook this up. Can't go wireless, unless the cost difference is neglible. Thanks.
