OK, I have a Dell Dimension 2400 and a Compaq Presario 6000.
I have my Dell connected to AT&T Yahoo DSL via a Motorola single port modem.
I want to hook up the Presario in the office and leave the Dell in the dining room.

I tried to do this with the Network Connection Wizard but when I got to this part:
"This computer connects directly to the Internet. The other computers on my network connect through this computer" it told me I could not do that.

I am assuming that's because I have a single port modem. So, What hardware do I need?
I went to Circuit City last night to get a 'Wireless Router' but when I got there I realized that I really didn't know what I needed to buy, there were so many options.

Can you help me? Do I just need any kind of wireless router? And is that ALL? Or do I need some additional type of 'antenna' or something? I'm so frustrated!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
