Using a router with 2 pc: able to share files etc?

by Dingoden / June 30, 2004 1:13 PM PDT

G'day All,

I am contemplating buying a router to use with both PC's OS WIN XP Pro.

Can I still share files as I can with the "home network" and 2 nic's in server? Any advantages or not?

Thanks for information.

Thanks Mate,

The sharing of files was the main question. The problem of setting up; will pass the winter days here for another month or two (temps 75f )in day!
