Here is my hardware: A) flatscreen iMac WITHOUT a wireless card running panther (soon Tiger I hope) B) ibook G4 WITH airport extreme card running Tiger C) ibook G4 WITH either an airport or airport extreme card (was purchase last August new and I don't have it here to find out which card?) D) Linksys 5Port workgroup hub E) MOtorola Cable modem with four ports on the back (USB, ENET, Line1 Line2- The line ports look like ethernet size) I would like to be able to set up a wireless network on the cheap. (you might ask why on the cheap if I own so many Macs? Well, I only own one- the other two are school laptops as my wife and I are both educators and make peanuts for salaries.) Here is what I want to do: 1) Surf with cable modem 2) Network and sync the computers (I have .Mac. and will be able to sync much of what I want online through .mac, but I will also be using YouSyncronize software to sync(backup) some of the larger files between one of the iBooks and the iMac.) 3) Print from any computer to an HP deskjet 842C 4) Hook up my Playstation 2 (eventually a PS3 ) to play online games The PS2 and iMac are currently run into a Linksys 5 port workgroup hub and that is run into the Motorola Cable Modem and both work flawlessly. I know enough about networking and such to be dangerous NO really, I am a quick learner but need some direction and need it to be very cheap but am willing to pay more if need be to have the network be reliable or easier to set up. (I tried searching the fourm and found some info that was helpful but not everything I needed so any help is appreciated.) thanks!
