Question I'm new to wireless networking and would like help :)

Hello, all.

Yeah, I'm pretty much new to networking, in general, as well, so bear with me.

Anyway, I'm planning to use wireless networking between my two computers from scratch. I'd like to be able to share files between the two of them and share my dial-up Internet connection. First of all, is that possible with wireless networking?

If that's possible, what hardware and/or software do I need? I was thinking all I need is two wireless network adapters and an access point. I'm running Windows XP Pro on one computer and XP Home Edition on the other. Is there anything else I need to know? Am I way off?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

connect the wireless rotuer to your computers' nic....

then right click on you dialup connection and go to sharing this connection.....

you would have to cinfigure the clients to use DHCP and possibly install soem drives and additional software and follow the mfr.s instaructions to get it to sense the dialup connection..

ive never head this before....
