It sounded simple at first, until I read man 8 wicontrol.  I'm new to
networking, and I'd like something somewhat 'plug-n-pray'.  Also, most of
the routers are Cable/DSL routers with firewalls/DHCP built in.  I just have
a dialup ISP, so all I need is a wireless hub, basically.

My other computer is your Windows box.
