    Hi everyone,

    Today my ISP installed a wireless lan broadband router, so I can now access the internet wirelessly around the house! It is great so far.

    I was wondering if there are any cool things I can do, like access my dads laptop (which has Windows XP) etc.

    Also, is 'Interference Robustness' something I want to enable?

    My ISP has extremely limited knowledge of Macs!

    Thanks.

    I always turn on Interference Robustness, but haven't noticed it to have any real effect. If you want to access the XP machine, it needs to have some folders shared. Windows works on the premise that you need to tell it to share something before others can access it, where the Mac will let anyone access the Users directory, so long as they log in (Mac), or you turn on Windows Sharing (Windows).

    Thanks for the help.

    That is a lot of Mac's you have! Does each have a specific function?
