You would think as long as the cable modem or DSL (whatever kind of connection you have) is connected to a wireless router, it will broadcast that signal to all the PCs that have a wireless adapter.
Computer 2 can be wireless like computer 1
They show that because the router I have selected can have a wired computer as well.. I like these with both because some of my friends dont have wireless, so they plug in..
You can take a wireless card and put it in computer1 and make it like the one on the bottom.
When you run the wizard in the router control panel it will ask you for your ppoe settings,.. user/pass for your DSL. this will make the connection "always on".. So when one computer turns on it will have internet.
