    quick dilemma:
    my mothers laptop here gets internet access from a wifi hotspot she
    connects to... she cancelled our dsl because she gets her internet from
    her wifi and my brother said he is gonna get a wifi card for his
    desktop... my desktop has linux (fedora core 5) and a standard NIC with
    the RJ45 on the back...
    my question:
    is it possible to jack into the back of my brothers desktop or moms
    laptop from my desktop or something like that and get internet restored
    to my linux? or do i have to go out and get one of those wifi cards too?

    Ouch. That is a pretty complicated question. I guess you could try trial and error if that is not cost prohibitive for you

    they have wifi devices on ebay that plug directly into the RJ-45. I used one
    on my old xbox. I think you're better off going to best buy or office max
    and just buying a USB WiFi adapter that's compatible with linux for about
    the same price. It'll come with software and you'll be all set to go.
