ok guys get ready for the ride. I just bought a 867 g4 great machine. Well I am about to get internet installed in my house. I live in the middle of no where in Nevada. Since they don't have dsl or cable modem service..lol they dont even have cable period. Directv for everyone which isn't really a bad thing. They do however off what is called wireless internet. They have like 4 towers here and every who can afford it gets high speed internet from them. The installer comes and puts a atenna up and then runs coax cable down to a cisco aero-net wireless bridge. From there they run cat-5 cable to a hub and then the hub provides internet to how many computers I want to hook up to it. Ok so here is the problem...well not so much of a problem...but just something I am wondering will work how i want it to. I have a Gateway win 98 box a Packard Bell win me box and a powermac g4 tower running OSX 10.1. I want all of the computers to be able to be on the internet at the same time if I so choose. Another thing I want to do is use the packard bell computer to act as soem sort of file-server. I want to store all of my mp3's on it, and then have the g4 and the gateway box be able to stream ( lack of a better word) mp3's I store on the packard bell at anytime. I really dont want the gateway box and g4 to be able to share files with each other...but be able to write to and get stuff off of the packard bell. I also have some more questions....my isp says it doesnt support servers, well when I had bellsouth dsl in atlanta they said it in their terms also but they never acted on them. I was wondering is it possible for my current isp to be able to knwo if I am running a small ftp server to let friends get on from time to time to download a few pics and what not. Thanks in advance for an replies...even if you dont have a solid answer to any of my questions bits and pieces are better than no replies....lol someone point me in the right direction.
