Setting Up Network W/Wired Router
Is there any way to set up a network using a wired Linksys router? The main
computer is running Vista Home Premium, and my husbands computer is running
XP Home.

Re: Setting Up Network W/Wired Router
Yes, but you have to buy the parts first.. you may want to consider wireless
connections if there is some distance between the computers..
