    Im wanting to connect two desktops, and im kinda unsure of the specific things to get.
    I know i need a router and what are some of the other things i need, and what brands are the best for network cards and other stuff? Right now im leaning toward linksys, but im open to suggestions

    Go Linksys.

    You'll need two Linksys WNIC's. You'll need a wireless access point, and you'll need a router if you're sharing high-speed internet.

    Like Steve said, go Linksys. Easy to set up and they are pretty reliable.

    Just make sure you set up WEP at minimum. Don't want other people leatching off your bandwidth. :big grin:
