I have a home network with two computers - i'm thinking of adding in a third - a WinXP (sp2) desktop that i just bought.
In poking around in the XP network set up i noticed (for choosing the ICS computer) that it says:
"The computer must be one that you can leave on at all times so that the other computers can access the internet. If the computer is turned off the connection to the internet will not be available."
Is this really true - because right now i have a desktop (WinME) computer hardwired to a Netgear hub/wireless router and networked (wirelessly) to a Win98SE laptop . My desktop does not have to be on for the laptop to access the internet (obviously it does for printer and file sharing), but that's not what i understand from the above statement.
I'm confused before i've begun.
