Airport and PC

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I just placed an order for my very first Mac ever (ibook)!! At home I have a PC hooked up to a cable modem. I was wondering if I can get a airport base station and card for my ibook and also keep the pc hooked up to the internet as well for my girl friend? Can I use both at the same time with the pc hooked up to the base station with the cat. 5 cable?

    Hey Tristan,



    You'll need to head on down to your local CompUSA and pick up a broadband sharing device. About $99. Also, if you wanted to save a little cheese, instead of getting an Airport base station, get some cheapo 802.11b base station while you're there.. Or even better, get a combo! If money isn't an issue, Airport might be your best bet, because it is so easy to set up

    The new Airport Basestation will work fine for what you describe. It has an additional ethernet-out port so it will also dish out IPs to cable connected PC's as well as your 802.11 equipped iBook.
