    Hey y'all,

    I will be sharing my apt with my cousin for a few months (hopefully). We were considering how to share the internet connection (cable from comcast), and I realized that he has a PeeCee. :):sighs:: well you cant pick family :)). I currently have a iMac G3 running around the clock and he has an EMachine. Anyways, I have the following question to get a grasp of the things I need to get.

    Should I go wireless or get an ethernet hub (what brand)?

    If I go wireless, does anyone know where I can get the adapter for the airportcard except for ebay?

    Also, any particular brand of cards (wired or wireless) I should use for the PeeCee?

    Lastly, hows life like sharing a connection with a PeeCee? any word of advice and what software do you use to communicate between the two computers?

    Thanks much.

    I think I might have an unused AirPort adaptor card at home from about 4 or 5 years ago! If you are in the UK and need it send my a PM...

    or you can simply get a router, like a linksys router...maybe a wireless one...or get a dlink router...that way you both can be on the same internet connection without paying extra for another ip address..
