ah! thanks for the info mate!!
been reading about the NIC on the zotac mobo - as well as the Asrock board. They are 802.11n capable - can i have them as a WAP? so i can connect 2 maybe three laptops to the desktop/server/main rig?
and ofcourse, i forgot to mention , my pal will get a broadband connection via ethernet.
anything i need to know before i get my feet wet with your above advice?
Of course, the desktop would have to be on for the laptop to get a connection.
yeah i know about that
my pal would have it at his office and it'd be on for pretty much all the time, acting as a server for downloads and he'd have his laptop for transactions.
