Just establised my home network. PC running XP conected via ethernet cable to a Netgear DG834G wireless modem/router. An iBook running OSX, with airport card installed, detected the wireless network and virtually configured itself. Both machines shared broadband internet access without any problems. File and printer sharing was more difficult to understand. Once the work group name was set the same on both machines the Mac told me the address to be used on the PC when ‘Adding a network place’. Transferring files was then drag and drop. I'm becoming a big Mac fan.
