    Computer Help Needed Please!!

    Hi, i've just brought a second pc and would like to share the current wireless connection of my exsisting pc. Now i don't know alot about computers but i think i might need a network card in each computer? and a cable (if anyone could tell me what it's called that would be great) to connect them both. If anyone could tell me exactly what i should do and the easist way to do it that would be most appreciated. Thanks

    Assuming you have a wireless router you dont need any cables. Would will need a wireless card for your new PC (or a USB dongle) it will come with a set up disc which should guide you through how to set it up, if you have any security (WEP Key) etc on the network you will need to remember to input this into the wireless network settings on the new pc

    If you already have a wireless router then all you need in each PC is either a wireless card or a wireless usb dongle, either of these will then be able to connect to the wireless router and get access to the internet.

    Thanks, so the easiest way is to just get a wireless card for it? Will i be able to share/view my computer's contents with each other?

    Hooking both of them up to the router wont automatically allow you to share content, you are just using the router as a wireless internet access point using the method i described. I'm not too techy so I'll let someone else explain to you about drive and file sharing as I would most likely get it wrong!
