Hi All,
Ok, so here it goes. My house, my parents house and my best friends house are all right next to each other. Im in the middle, parents to the left... friend to the right. We can see and connect to each others wireless networks. What we would like to do is link them all into one network while still maintaining our own internet connections. For example, my 20mbs line would only go to the computers in my house, my dads would go to his etc.... We all play online games together, run a vent server and share movie files and software frequently, so for obvious reasons all of us being on the same network would be logistically convenient. Thx in advance for your time.

Thx

You could try a Network Bridge but with three different connections, all at varying rates of transfer - even if you set the MTU the same - the potential for conflicts would be huge. As gamers, you're looking to reduce latency not invite it in.

I think if the three computer link together the internet connection speed will be slowed. Is it?
