    My entire house is running on an 802.11b wireless network.

    The entire house is running Windows - except two computers just got Fedora Core 4 installed. And they need internet.

    Because of the setup we have, we can not string ethernet cables. And the 802.11b recievers are all USB - incompatible with linux.

    So, is there a free or VERY cheap way to get Wireless connection to ethernet?

    Thanks,

    i got a pci 802.11g card for $8 from newegg a couple months ago
    *checks newegg*
    they have one for $11.50 right now.
    also, are the FC4 machines close enough to any windows pcs to string a short bit of ethernet cable and do internet sharing?
    a wireless access point?

    Well... yes. They are so close, they are one in the same.

    Two of the PCs with FC4 on them have removable boot drive harddrive enclosures. So, the black box has Windows and the white box has FC4.

    No Windows only PC is close enough for ICS though... and I'd rather not have a PCI 802.11g card, thats a last resort. My USB card works amazingly well.
