I have three PCs on a Wi-Fi network, I want two of them to be also linked between the Wi-Fi with high-speed ethernet. Is that possible?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Its possible to link two machines together, but the benefits could very well be minimal.  Cross over cables would work for this.  But for it to be effective I would suggest one machine having a DHCP service running, or configure your routing table.

    Not sure why you'd want to do it, but sure, it's possible. As long as the wireless and Ethernet are on separate network segments your operating system should be able to handle it.
