in an attempt to consolidate and clean up my office i moved all my
networking gear to a closet in the basement. since i am unable to run
ethernet from the basement to the office upstairs (without cutting up
walls) i picked up a wireless router (WGRT54) a while back. this
solution works great since my main laptop has wireless and my wife's
iMac is wireless.
the problem is i'd like to set up a couple boxes that don't have
wireless and i don't really want to do all the setup downstairs in the
closet where the boxes will eventually live. so i'm planning on
picking up a Linksys WET54G (1) that i can connect to a hub in my
office upstairs to get these boxes on the network for the
installation\configuration. is this a feasible solution? and is
there a better solution?
i'm also planning to pick up a wireless card (PCMCIA) for Dell laptop
that i'd like to work with Linux & XP. i've had good luck with
Linksys products so far, so that's what i was planning on picking up.
any gotchas there? are there any cards i should look into specifically
or that i should stay away from?
