Thread: Mac Networking
08-01-2004, 02:19 PM #1maxxGuestMac Networking
I'm almost completely new to the world of Apple Mac and am interested in networking two computers. Specifically, I have Powermac in one room, connected to the Internet with a broadband ADSL modem and an emac in another room without Internet. I want to network the two so that I can get Internet on my emac.
I believe that there are three main ways of networking the two machines: ethernet cable, router and airport.
I don't have much in the way of money so I'm tempted to go for the cheap option and use an ethernet cable.
I could use some friendly advice about networking in this way. Does it work without hitch? What are the problems associated with ethernet networking?
Any advice or help to this new Mac User would be veeeeeeeeery much appreciated.

If you go for ethernet cables, I don't think you should have much problems. From my experience it should be pretty much plug and surf. If you still like the idea of a cheap wirless solution, you can go for a wirless router that is G compliant. They should be around $80 or so. If you run into problems I think it should be because of the system preferences in the network pane.
