Can you get net on both boxes? I want to have 2 pc's away from everything else folding away(out of the way) running cat5 isn't an option so a wireless N card would be good. Get one (cuts down on cost) I can run a patch from one pc to the other and use one as a source of internet can't I?

If so how? Will it involve software that will cut down on the ppd's of each box?

edit. I think I found my answer

thought it was that way, but wasn't for sure.

I'm pretty sure it can be done, you might need to fiddle with the network settings. It's like when you access a printer through another computer on a wireless laptop, so correct me if I'm wrong but I'm certain you should be able to find a way to make it work!
