I am going to try again to post a topic and hope I do not hit the wrong button and make it go away this time.
I will try to make this more clear than mud. Up until lately the only way to get faster than dial up where i live has been to using Hughesnet satilite DSL type thingie. I have a network set up with the satilite modem connected to a router by ethernet wire and then connecting to three computers also by ethernet, two 100 ft. long.
The property next to mine has set up a wifi connetion and after talking to the owners I have been given the ok to tap into their system. I was figuring I would have to buy a wifi card and install it since my computer did not come with one but ended up getting a cantenna from Illum-nation.com which has a card included and is connected to the computer via USB making it a plug-n-play set up. With my limited knowledge regarding the world of computers, this worked out great.
My question is (yes, there is one) it possible to use my computer as the source of the internet connection and going through the router I already have, connect to the other computers with the ethernet wires already set up. presently my computer is on one of the 100 foot wires from the router. I donot know if that is a factor to consider. If I can use the system already setup, I can save some bucks not having to buy cantennas for the other two computers. Anyway, if anyone can give me some info about this or needs more info from me, please respond to this line. Thank you in advance.
