i pretty much know nothing about networking or IPs or any of that. please be gentle.<br><br>we have an imac at home which is connected to the internet with @home high speed internet. we are looking to get a laptop for school/wandering internet use. my understanding is that you just need 2 airport cards and theyll talk to each other, our imac being the "base station". do we need a hub or a router or any of that stuff or just the 2 airport cards? would both computers have the same IP then if theyre both running the same internet connection? <br><br>
yes it'll work, Misha can tell you how if he wants to... I know that he's set it up to work using a PowerMac G4 and an iBook and a PowerBook G4....<br><br>there should be directions for it in Apple's Knowledge base as well...<br><br>***<br>"Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms"<br> --Clint Eastwood in The Outlaw Josey Wales<br>
