Hey every1, 1st of all, wow have i missed the forum.
2ndly, can anyone help me?
Soon i will be setting up a network, i have an idea on how to do it but not sure if it will work but here's how i think it will go:
Coming into the house will be a broadband internet line.
This will go into a single ethernet port ADSL router which will connect to my main computer. I will be using Sygate Home Network to share the connection to the computers on my network.
From a 2nd NIC on the main PC will be a Cat 5 patch cable going into a hub. Other computers will then plug into the hub and connect up to the network.
Now here's the bit i am not sure about, i have two laptops with wireless cards in them. They use 802.11g (54mbps).
To get them to connect to the network they need to connect to a wireless hub. Rather than put a 3rd NIC in the main PC, plug the wireless hub into it and bridge the Ethernet and wireless connections, can i plug my wireless hub straight into the normal hub and have my laptops connect to the network?
Sorry it is long winded but i wanted to give all the information.
Am open to suggestions and alternative methods for my network.
