I would recommend getting a wireless router like me. It\'s helpful as you can use it for your DS. A Belkin router is good, but so is linksys.. just look around and see what one is cheaper, they all do the same thing.

If your 2 PC\'s have enough slots, buy 2 Wireless card adapters or if you have plenty of USB ports get some USB adapters.

I recommend getting them on Ebuyer as they are very good for prices and delivery

Well Saikou recommended Avoiding Belkin, so im going to pass on those routers. probably end up getting a netgear one for about 50-65 quid. Just seems alot.

Linksys are the a child company of Cisco.

Cisco are the networking company for businesses. Linysys are the networking company for home users.

I recommend only Linksys for you therefore Beat... not only are their equipment suberbly made, but they work and the configuration is nicely laid out. I've used a few 'lesser' brands and sometimes it feels like when they work its a miracle and the configuration is a nightmare...

My Dad has a Linksys Wireless Router/Modem at his place. Various PC's connected to it via its built in switch and Dad roams as he feels with his laptop.

Im trying to learn UNIX, lots of commands to memorize but to you SkipRat,

FSCK!

And the command, chown -R us ./base, is from the old school game, zero wing, when it had a bad translation, "All your base are belong to us", when it should have read, "All of you base now belongs to us." Let me break it down, "chown" is CHange OWNership of a directory or file, "-R" is recursive meaning all, "us" is the new owner *Sidenote: it is owner:group but only the owner is changed in this case*, "./base" is the directory/file being changed to new ownership.

Wicked, I put in the order last night, looking forward to getting it. I heard something about Linksys using a DMZ function so the Router only affects which computers you want, handy for running a gaming server

Yes, you can enable DMZ mode to open all ports on your router. However, I would only recommend doing that if you can't force the ports you want <_<

You can forward ports as you wish with the Linksys. As sobe states, its best to forward. DMZ removes any protection your router provides for your network for the given IP address, letting everything through.

Really. GRR I have my server PC set up that way.
I also have it set-up so that I can't access the gaming PC (main PC) from the server PC. Other other hand, I do have it set-up to be able to access and write to the server PC from the gaming PC.
I found that when I had the DMZ disabled, you couldn't get a ping reading on the UT2004 server. All that showed up was an N/A for the ping. Although, it did show what map was playing but not how many players were in the server.

Beatonator, congrats. Maybe we can have a spot of tea and a game. You won't have that lag advantage any more(300 plus ping), so you will have to reconfigure your skills.
