I'm a little confused about how to set this up but I will do my best to describe the situation.
We have 2 PCs that need to be connected to each other by ethernet (wireless will not work for this software, or at least not reliably). Both PCs have their wireless connections disabled.
I work in a room with no ethernet jacks at all. There is a wireless network available for guests. This office is very security conscious so we are not allowed onto their internal network at all.
I want to connect the 2 PCs to the LAN ports on a router. The router will have DHCP enabled to handle the IP addresses.
I would like to have internet access on the PCs too, so I'm wondering if I can get a Wireless Access Point, configure it to connect to the wifi network and then plug it into the WAN port of the router. This would keep our little 2-user network separate from the rest of the office
Will this give the PCs an internet connection through their ethernet cables?
If this will work, can you give any recommendations of an inexpensive router and access point (preferably on Amazon)?
I truly appreciate any help that anyone can give me!
