Hey everyone, new to the forums .. new to mac! I just went to the apple store (Yorkdale) to buy my first iBook.. but of course, they were out of stock. The guy said it will take at least 2 weeks before they come in.. so I put my name on the waiting list.. hopefully it comes soon. I have a question though about wireless networking. I have a PC in my basement. Now, I will use my iBook all over the house.. but my base station will be in my room which is 2 floors up from the basement. I don't have a wireless card in my PC.. so I want to avoid buying anything else if I need to. I was thinking of taking my pc and connecting it from my ethernet port into a wireless access point (with a cable) and then having the wireless internet available for my laptop. Now the guy at the store says it would be best to put my wireless base station in my room.. because it "mushrooms" out and will fall and I will get good connection in my basement. Now if I do that, I have to buy a seperate PCI card for my PC. Now does anyone know any non-apple products that I can get (dlink..linksys?) that will do what I want.. and is cheap.. but will work good?? Sorry if I am confusing!
