I tried asking at Best Buy and got the answer I expected "Sure you can but I can't explain it". Here is the question: I have a desktop and a work notebook. I have them networked together using a router/switcher. The notebook operates on a VPN so the notebook and desktop cannot talk to each other. I think I want to buy another laptop for my personal use and set up wireless (not allowed to use wireless for work laptop). Having a wireless router with the desktop, VPN laptop (via cat5) and wireless laptop, will my personal machines communicate with each other (XP home on both)? What would I need to accomplish this?
