We have 3 computers. My computer which already has cable hooked up, and two others that just use a phone line. Today we are getting wireless for the 2 computers that dont have internet access. My question is, if i had a second network card, could I share the connection through ICS instead of hooking my cable connection into the WAN port of the wireless router?
The reason I'd like to do this is so I can maintain a IP address, while it isnt important if the other 2 computers have one.
My computer is Windows XP pro
One of the other computers is Xp pro as well, while the last computer is windows ME.

Thanks,

Onslaught

the answer to your question is yes. But I don't get why you just don't want to use the NAT functionality of the router?
