  1. I read your ezlan.net security instructions and one of your suggestions for
    security is to "Set the DHCP to the same number of computers that you have on
    your Network" I have 3 computers on my network, one wired and two wireless.
    Do I set it for 3 or do I just need to count the 2 wireless connections?
    Sorry, dumb question I know.

    By the way, the article was great. It answered a lot of questions for me.

  2. Hi
    The DHCP is providing IPs to a computer, it does not matter if it is
    connected via wire or wireless.
    Number of Wireless Computer + Number of Wired Computers = Number of IPs
    available via DHCP.
    So in your case it is 3.
