Wireless Networking a Mac to a PC
Posted on 2004-04-23
I tried posting this question under Networking -->Broadband & was told to try under Mac. Hope this is it!
A friend has a Mac networked to another Mac. I believe it is via a wireless router. He wants to buy a PC to take the place of the host Mac computer. Access to the Internet is currently via Broadband Cable (Comcast).
I have no experience with Mac computers. Is it possible to network the proposed new laptop PC to the existing laptop Mac. If so, how would Windows XP on the new PC handle this & would I have to make settings within the Mac's operating system? Am I in over my head trying to do this given that I have no experience with Mac computers?
The goal is to share the Broadband Internet connection.
Thanks for any help.
