Hi - I've got a scenario of five XP Pro workgroup PCs one acting as a server. Broadband router acts as DHCP and DNS server.
We keep losing broadband and the ISP are still trying to resolve, but in the meantime I've added wifi USB sticks (108Mbps) and cards (54Mbps) to the 5 PCs to piggyback onto nextdoor office's router.
Wifi is on 192.168.1.x and struggles along at 1 to 2Mb speed but good enough for emails. Wired network is on 192.168.8.x In order to get the internet I have to disable the wired NIC and in order to get a good LAN speed I have to disable the wifi NIC.
