This is what I'm working with:
2 PC's running XP (1 pro, 1 home).
*XP pro = Netgear WPN311
*XP home = Dlink DWL-G520
Xbox 360 w/ Dlink DWL-G820
Wireless router: Netgear Rangemax WPN824
I have both PC's at the same desk in a room downstairs from the router. The 360's wireless bridge is only on when I'm using the 360, and in those times I usually disable the wireless on the XP home PC.
I'm trying to optimize my setup to get the best performance I can, so I'm wondering if anyone who's had similar setups has any tips/suggestions to offer. Before this I was lucky enough to be the one controlling the router so I had everything wired. Dropping a cable down through the wall from the floor above has already been shot down.
Due to a combination of my lack of real understanding of how wireless networking works and my brain's inability to think clearly at this late hour, I'm wondering if it would be an improvement to just have one PC connected wirelessly and share its connection with the other PC (or even the 360 too).
Is this just wishful/delusional thinking? Sorry if any of this is incoherent...
