wifi using dial-up modem
I live in a remote area in Canada and, alas, I don't know if we will ever get broadband service. SO .. I have an older PC (1998) attached to an external modem.
I am in hopes that I can access the internet with the modem and thru the PC, via ethernet card, feed to a wireless router which i can then pass messages to a Dell 800 laptop running windows 2000 and Ununtu Breezy and an HP laptop running Ubuntu Breezy. I am currently running windows 98 and Mandrake 9.0 on the PC. I have two hard drives on it, one dedicated to Linux. I will replace Mandrake with Ubuntu Breezy. The fellow at Best Buy, where I got the below hardware, told me I could not accomplish tying all this together with windows 98.
I am new to linux and don't know where to start. I know enough to be dangerous!!
I have the ethernet card for the PC, the wireless router, and the PCMCIA cardsfor the HP. All Linksys equipment. I have the PCMCIA card for the Dell and it works fine on ethernet and wireless, now.
ANY help would be greatl appreciated.
