hello there...just bought this computer http://motherboards.org/forums/viewtopi ... 4bd8f99203
and I would like to connect it to another P4 i already have and both to the web.
first question: Is this correct that if my neighbor also has wireless network he can surf on my connection?!

right now I'm on cables connection, I'm not sure what my exact speed is
though...
Net limiter show's line speed: upload-64Kbps download- 100Mbps
FTP speed when download is 170-175 Kbps
and when I'm doing speed check on my ISP (optonline.com) I'm geting anywhere bet. 3000-8000Kbps

So I got a little confused....

I really want to keep my bandwidth speed and not having to loss speed because it's a wireless.if i lose anything at all :?:
and i want also fast communication between the PC's- printer

and I want it under $100 for a kit :oops:
(damn, too many "want" in this post....)

any suggestion will help.... :wink:
thank u guys

To start, if your neighbor wants to share your connection you'll need to get a wireless capable router. That also assumes he is within range. How do you plan on networking your computers? The one closest to the router can be connected with a cable and if the other machine is in the same room it canbe connected that way as well. Otherwise you'll need a wireless pci card or something of that nature. You should be able to obtain those parts for under 100 bucks. Linksys and belkin both work well for me.

well, the 2nd computer is 2 floor up so i think wireless is the ultimate thing...
but the other computer will be in the same room with the router.
can u recommand on a router that have option for a wire and wireless?
so i can set 1 computer on wireless PCI card and one with wire connection?

thanks again...

Not sure how to set up the Netgear (use Linksys) but on mine I disabled wireless broadcast, changed the default SSID name, and allowed only the MAC address of the laptop. If you follow these general rules, you shouldn't have any problem with any one else using your wireless connection.
