That's the first problem. You can only use one ISP. She'll have to get rid of AOHell.
Then it's really simple. Get a router. Most today support wireless. All you need is a wireless NIC. The router should have a USB connection also.
File and printer sharing is available, but only if you turn it on and create a home network.
Otherwise, just get a router, wireless NIC, and set it up.

Suppose you were an idiot. . . And suppose you were a member of Congress. . . But I repeat myself.
I just got DSL within the past month and I would like to save my mom some money by connecting the family computer to my computer to share the DSL line. She has AOL and I think its a waste that she spends 30 bucks a month on a crap service when I can get SBC Yahoo DSL for the same price.
Anyway, it has to be wireless it just isn't practical to run cables to her computer. What would you guys suggest? I want to get it for her for her B-Day and don't have a ton to spend. I would like to keep it around 60 bucks mayve a little more. I know a lot of places have rebates so that will help. What brand for the the price range is good?
I will also like to get a USB adapter for the easy install. I would like this to be included in the 60 dollars that I am willing to spend. I don't mind if thats the price after rebates.
If I do connect her computer to mine I only want to share the broadband internet. I don't want to share files or need any of that. Also, will this slow my internet down? If so how much? I don't want it to slow it down too much.
Lastly and thanks for hanging in there with me, is it easy to install? I have decent understanding of things and can figure things out with directions well most of the time? Could I set this up myself?
