  1. hello all....currently i have a router that recieves the internet signal via cable, but then slips the signal into a dsl line, which is plugged into the wall so every phone jack in th house now has internet access with dsl speeds. But i just bought a laptop and i would use the internet the same way (plug phoneline cable in wall) but what if i want to do direct file transfers from a desktop to a laptop? i'm transfering about 10 gigs or so a there a way i can access my desktop from a laptop (click and drag style) when i'm connected to the router?
    thanks for your time..

    When both that desktop and the laptop are connected to the same router (which requires both to have an ethernet adapter (or NIC)), you can drag and drop as much as you like, once you have setup your network.

    Alternatively, again using NICs, you could connect the desktop direct to the laptop, using a crossover-cable.
