    Hi, I don't really know a whole lot about networking, so I am hoping to learn a little.

    I currenty have a WRT54G router that connect to a cable modem. There are 4 computers (all on XP) connected to the router with WMP54G cards. I have two more computers on Windows 98 that I would like to connect wirelessly but, the router only has 4 ports. Does this mean you cannot connect more than 4 computer to the router?
    If so, what do I need to get so I connect the other computers?
    Otherwise, can I just buy two more of the WMP54G cards and connect them to my current router?

    If you're talking about wired computers, get yourself a switch or hub, and just plug it into one of the ports and plug a bunch of computers into it. I think the WRT54G can handle something like 120+ clients that way.

    Wireless? I had heard that the limit was something like 40, but I don't know for sure. Quite a few more than 4, I'm sure.
