I have 3 PCs. "A" is connected to the internet via an Alcatel green frog USB ADSL modem. "B" is connected to "A" using USB 802.11b wireless Peer to Peer network. "A" & "B" are both running Windows XP home.
My third machine "C" is a laptop running Windows 2000. I have tried connecting it to "B" via a crossover RJ45 cable. This connection does work but it disables the network link between "A" & "B".
So, "A" will talk to "B" OR "B" will talk to "C" and so far I can't get "A" and "C" to see each other, never mind Internet Connection Sharing!
What am I doing wrong? A pal suggests using a non crossover RJ45 (which I don't have but could buy one).
I will probably end up getting a PCMCIA wireless card - they are about £32 for Actiontec, the same type I have on "A" & "B"..... I assume I can run 3 Wifi units in a P2P network?
Thanks & all the best for the New Year.
