Hi all

I have a PC upstairs (XP) with broadband access via a wireless ADSL router.
If I wanted to receive net access on a second PC in a different bedroom,
what would I need?

Would it be just a wireless network card or something else?

Cheers

Or a HPNA..home phoneline network. Buy the phoneline PCI card for each
PC, plug it into a phoneline that is common to both locations, can be a
working line or spare, and you have a network.
One caveat...the host machine, your choice, must be turned on in order
for the other machine to connect.
For another ~$200.00 you can buy another phoneline router that will
allow each machine to connect independent of the other.

Umm, since the OP says that he already has a wireless router, this seems a
bit silly?

£20 for a wireless adaptor, or more than double that for the two phoneline
PCI cards ??

BTW, welcome to UK.comp.home-networking )
