I've had a small wireless network in my home for about a year with 1 hardwired desktop, 1 wireless desktop and 1 wireless laptop with few problems. I'm using a lynksys WRT54G router with 128 bit WEP, and Mac address filtering on all devices.
Got married last week and moved into new house with wife who has a similar setup (same router) but has security WEP set up specifically for her work laptop to access with their own keys. She needs this setup on her own Desktop unit to access her work stuff as well if she leaves her laptop at work. Her son's laptop has wireless settings to be able to access the wife's network. So far, I have been unable to get his laptop to access my network at the new house which my devices are not having problems with (been too busy unpacking to mess with it).
How can I set this up so we all access the same network in the new house? Can I use the wife's router with all of her work settings as an access point for my network? Would it work better the other way around? Total of 3 desktops, 3 laptops, two wireless routers and 2 printers. All devices have a wireless card except my desktop and the 2 printers.
Have some (very) rudimentary wireless and networking) knowledge but work better if acronyms are kept to a minimum.
Thanks in advance, Jon
