Question Installing a router

hello everyone-

I currently have a windows box and a linux box...
My WBOX is internet ready and I'm attempting to install a router to it, So I can get wireless access to the web.

If I get the router setup to my WBOX, and install a wireless PCI lan adapter in my linux destop comp, will the linux comp be able to access the internet via my WBOX??


My internet is comcast cable modem DSL..

My router is a Netgear 54mbps WGR614


I hope I asked this question correctly

You will not be getting your connection from your windows machine. You will be getting it from the WAP.


( isp )
-- ( cablemodem )
( WAP (router) )
( nix box ) ( win box )
