  1. Because we live in a somewhat isolated area, internet access over dialup is our only option unfortunately and thus far we've only had one PC in the house that served as our main PC.

    Now we've got a second PC and would like to share the Internet connection, printer, and files from the first PC. Both PCs have wireless NIC cards.

    I'd like to know if it's possible to create a mini-network with the two PCs, two wireless NICs and a dialup Internet connection?

    If so, any tips, pointers, or references to websites would be greatly appreciated. It seems everyone and their brother has broadband access (DSL or Cable) & wireless routers and none of the sites I've come across help my particular need.

    Thanks in advance of any help you can provide. Be gentle, I'm new at all this.
