I have three systems. All are using winxp pro.

1 pc with broadband connection; broadband rj45 based cat5 cable connected to a wireless router and a rj45 based cat5 cable connected from ethernet port to the wireless router. (let it be denoted by x)

1 pc with usb type wireless client. (let it be denoted by y)

1 laptop with inbuilt wan connectivity. (let it be denoted by z)

Now Iwant to share the internet and share all systems. i.e. x, y and z

Do I have to do the networking with ip or without it?

Please help me??? A walkthrough will be helpful

Please find an attached image of my network layout


Thanks in advance

the easiest way to do this is with the home or office network "wizard" found in network places in control panel, just get a flopy disk, and follow the directions.

Setup the wirless Router as a DHCP server this will then in assign a address to all machines that are able to access it. The wireless devices will need to be setup to see the SSID and connect to the wireless router with all the security settings. If the PC's are set to obtain a IP address Automatically( set in default) then the Internet will automatically be shared to any connected machine.
