Is this possible?

I have a Cisco Aironet 350 PCI card and internet connection via a cable from an antenna on my roof (wich is pointed to a public accesspoint in my neighbourhood). In the same computer I also have an ordinary 3Com ethernet card. Is it possible to connect to a router via the ethernetcard, and then via the router to a second computer and a network printer? I want to share internet connectivity and the printer between my two computers.

I hope you understand my question! Thanks in advance!

Re: Is this possible?

I don't believe a router is what you want to use here, you'd be better off having a simple hub or switch and simply use Internet Connection Sharing (I'm assuming your running a version of Windows on the machine). Have your machine be the "router" for the other systems in other words.

Even better would be to install a wireless router/switch and let it do all the work. There are quite a few good ones on the market. Then the other systems wouldn't be dependant on the one with the 350 PCI card being on for gaining access to the internet and/or printer...
