my setup.


DSL modem connected to a wireless router upstairs.  My computer is connected via wireless ethernet card downstairs.  Have a second computer downstairs and want to be able to connect to the Internet with it also.  Is there anyway I can get my second computer to get an Internet connection through my first one? Crossover cable?

Greetings FaithNoMore,

You have a few options here.  Assuming that your other downstairs computer already has a network card, and your wireless computer has an extra network card, you could connect them both by a crossover cable, then either configure internet connection sharing, or bridge your wireless connection with your wired, crossover connection.  (To bridge them, you will also need Windows XP on your wireless computer).  Of course, you can always take your non-wireless computer and plug it into one of the extra wired ports on your upstairs router using a straight-through network cable.  Let us know what you would prefer, and then we can give you more detailed instructions.

Or get another WAP and a Hub. This allows future expansion as well.
