Hi. I am still trying to understand how to set up a wired network in my home. I have a Dell Computer in my bedroom and a emachine in my den. I would like the two computers to communicate with each other. I have read various posts and articles concerning the subject, but I do want to be certain on what I buy. I do not want to spend money and the setup does not work. One post said I should install a wireless card in the emachine in the den and use an ethernet cable to attach to a router on the Dell. Is that possible? I am totally confused. Can anyone please give me some decent advice. Any help will be appreciated. mary.
