What's better? More WiFi networks or fewer?

Devices share bandwidth on a network. WiFi networks compete for bandwidth with each other. Is it better from a user/performance perspective to have multiple networks and spread the devices out among them, or a single network with all devices using it? [more inside]

Netbook from Verizon - use with current WiFi setup? Monthly charge?

I live in Los Angeles and have Time Warner for my internet connection and Verizon for my cell service. If I buy a WiFi-capable netbook from Verizon, will it pick up the the signal from my wireless router I'm already using at home? If so, does this mean I don't have to pay any monthly charges for having the netbook?

How do I use my 'always on' internet on my mobile phone as a modem for my laptop?

How do I use my 'always on' internet on my mobile phone as a modem for my laptop? I own the T-mobile equilvant of the HTC TyTN with Windows Mobile 5.0 and a HP laptop with Windows XP. On my mobile phone I have T-mobile 3G internet with always on functionality. I would like to use my mobile phone as a modem with internet connection for my laptop so I can access the internet with my laptop no matter where I am. I connect to my mobile phone with an USB cable (I tried bluetooth but couldn't get it to work...). Does anyone know how to accomplish this? Maybe there are software applications that can do this for me? All tips are welcome!

80211.g Cards and Linux

802.11g cards that work well in Linux. What has worked for you (and under what kernel)? Is there any advantage in getting a card with a native driver instead of using ndiswrapper? Do they speak successfully to both G and B access points? Even better if the card is available in both PCMCIA and PCI.

Windows 2K/XP networking woes

I have two computers, one running Win XP and one Win 2k. The XP one has a USB wireless adaptor which connects to the wireless network in my house, and the 2k one is connected via ethernet cable to the XP one. At the moment, the 2k one can open folders on the XP one, but not vice versa, which I find to be extremely odd. I'd like to be able to fix that, and also allow the 2k one to use the internet, which at the moment it can't do. I assume there is something I need to do on the XP machine to get it working, but haven't really got a clue!
