Okay, well I just received two computers and a monitor from a friend. And I am going to be putting linux on them. I also have a non-wireless router that I am going to be using to connect the two computers together. The problem is is that I then don't have internet connect to the computers. they will be upstairs, and my wireless router is down stairs. So my question is this. There are wireless adapters that connect via ethernet to a rj-45 port on the computer. If I were to attach one of those to the incoming port, wan I believe it is called, could I then use that to give the router connectivity to the internet and allow the two computers on the router access to the internet?
all thoughts appreated.
ps. Sorry if it is confusing because of lack of vocab, you would think 4 months into a networking course I would know about this.
