I just hooked up a Linskys BEFSR41 Version 2 Etherfast Cable/DSL "Router" with built in 4 port 10/100 switch for sharing high speed internet. It is wired, not wireless. "Can I just plug in my PowerMac with a catagory 6 Ethernet cable to the router" and "run the two computers as lone enities" without the ability to exchange data or use the same perifials. I hope I can..and I hope I can add more computers, Apple and PC as lone enities too. "I am about to take my "G5 2.5 Dually PowerMac" out of the box, my first Mac" Thanks Tom "Later on I will link some of these together, I am a brand new switcher. and proud as punch...but I know almost nothing.
