Wireless and wired network

  1. Hi

    I have two PC's (using Linksys USB wireless-G) a laptop and a handheld PC
    sharing a Linksys WAG54G wireless internet setup. All works very well. The
    topology of the network dictates the wireless router be situated in a room
    away from the main computers.

    My question, I have a third PC I would like to connect to the network but am
    unable to route ethernet cables to the wireless router.

    Without buying a third USB wireless unit, is it possible to connect the
    third PC to one of the other wireless PCs (which all have redundant network
    cards) ?

    Paul

  2. Me thinks you need a router for the connection. Although you can run it
    ad-hoc, which is what i think you are trying to do.

    these two places should help you with it

    Also try out Network Magic

    Good luck
