    Question totaly newbee

    I would like to set up a wireless sys with 3 computers and connect to a broadband. What is a good choice,that wont cost an arm and a leg. Second is is possible to have it set up so any of the sys can go onto the internet by themselves?

    Hi Ken_R

    I don't know what your definition of "an arm and a leg" is, but I have had good luck with A Linksys router to achieve what you want.
    I haven't used their wireless models, but have heard they work well.

    Here is a link to their site that also has a little tab called "educate me".
    Don't run out just yet and buy everything though, as there are sure to be other opinions comming your way soon!

    netgear ethernet HUB with room to plug in 3 computers:

    $49.00 (us)

    plug it in and go- no need to use M$ ICS (micro$oft internet connection sharing).

    can you say "hubba bubba"??

    I have it and it worked so easy I thought something was wrong.

    I'm using a Linksys EthterFast Wireless AP + Cable/DSL Router with 4-port Switch, cost $100. And a wireless USB Network Adapter, cost $100. You can go with a Router with out cable ports and save some money. There is a PCI wireless adapter that cost less as well. The USB is much easyer to setup. I have two computers sharing cable Internet. Works great, just as fast as with direct cable connected. The only negative thing I can say is that file transfers between your computers are slower but I find that too be no big deal. I recommend that you setup everything (read the instructions) and call tech support and they'll be glad to step you through the configurations on line.
