hey I have an idea i'm entertaining here but not sure how I'm going to set it up or if it's possible.... I have 2 computers I want to hook togeather in a mini-server kind of thing i guess. The internet we have is WiFi, so it can be picked up on the laptop I'm using as I speak. BUT, I have a really nice Win2000 gaming machine I just built from the ground up and want to get this wireless on. I realize that i SHOULD buy a wireless ethernet adapter to pop into the gamer and simply connect to the web like that, but I was wondering of i can do it this way: Hook the desktop up to the laptop and receive internet that from it. Seems buying a $5 cable and a bit of work is a better deal than $30 and no work Seems like it could be done somehow XP to XP, but I'm not sure because one is XP and the other is 2000 there might be conflicts? Thanks.
