I want to link my pc's

  1. I dont know how to link my pcs so I can play my games with my friends on different pcs. I want to be able to play my Lord of the Rings and Age of Empires with my friends. I also want them to be able to come over and just connect their pc so we can all play. What do I do to make this happen? I also want to in the future set up a print server or a wireless print server.


    Thanks

    You can get a Linksys 5-to 8 port Switch or you can get a Router with 8 ports so you can have your friends connect up. If they have wireless onboard you can get a Wireless router instead. Not really hard to setup either wired or wireless routers.
