Hmmm... if there is a way i can network them wirelessly without Airport cards, etc it would be better for me.
This is what i found on osx.com regarding USB wifi adapters,
"I'd highly recommend staying away from the USB adapter. I have one on my TiVO, it works great. But... I'd go with a Ethernet to Wireless device. This is seperate from your Mac, so you don't have to worry about drivers and what not.
I am not recommending this particular model (it might be fine) http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=241
but that will give you an idea of what I am talking about."
Now, does this mean that there are similar such wifi adapters that instead plug into your ethernet port? Also, an 'ethernet' port is the large port where the Cat5 wire is inserted, correct?
So assuming i could get my hands a pair of ethernet wifi adapters, this is how it would be set up:
Modem=> Wireless ethernet router
Wireless ethernet router => 2x Ethernet wifi adapters
This would mean that both computers could access the internet (even if one wasn't turned on) and that they could share files, correct?
