Buy an Wireless Router. Install Internet to Router. Connect local machine to router via CATV As router should have a integrated 4 port hub also. Make sure wireless router is compatible with the wireless capabilities of the remote system to be connected via wireless. Follow router manufacturer's setup guide to configure router and wireless access properties. Be sure to use wireless encryption (again make sure compatible with remote workstation(s)) Most Wireless router have approx 60ft realword range for decent connection speeds. You could also use the power line adapters. I think netgear makes those. You plug them into a wall outlet and it uses the home's electrical wiring as network wiring. This will give you a 10mb connection any where you have a wall outlet. Wireless will be faster as long as distance isn't too great.
