    I need some help..

    I have 10 computers at 1 location that I use for Posting ads on C L . They all connect, and disconect from the internet Via DSL. They are laptops, and currently I have them connected via WIFI.

    I Need some help with the following..

    I have an 11th computer that stays connected to the interenet. I want to net work that computer, to the other 10 via the ethernet cards on the Laptops. I want to set it so it does not use the eithernet card on the laptops for the internet, but keeps using the Wifi connect.

    In the end, I want to be able to put LogMeIn on the 11th computer, and use windows Remote Desktop to get to the other 10 computers with out them disconnecting.

    Please let me know if you can help and your price $$$. If you happen to be in Dallas, you can come over, if you aren't you can Remote in? or walk me through it.

    You need network hub with at least 16 ports, network cables (RJ-45). That's it since you are not using dedicated server.
    You must set each laptop with unique local IP, f.i:

    laptop 1: 192.168.2.1
    laptop 2: 192.168.2.2
    laptop 3: 192.168.2.3
    laptop 4: 192.168.2.4
    laptop 5: 192.168.2.5
    laptop 6: 192.168.2.6
    laptop 7: 192.168.2.7
    laptop 8: 192.168.2.8
    laptop 9: 192.168.2.9
    laptop 10: 192.168.2.10

    Setting up RDP is not as easy as it looks. If you are using XP, it can be easily to be remoted to "unlimited". There is a patch for their terminal service.

    This just a brief walk through.
