    You need a wireless router for a start. I suggest getting one that
    supports AppleTalk routing between the LAN and WLAN ports to let your
    iMac and iBook talk to each other using AppleTalk. I recently purchased
    a NetGear MR314 (the newer 814/814v2 doesn't support AppleTalk). You
    can a list of WAPs that support AppleTalk from this page:
    [url]http://www.network-ysis.ltd.uk/wapformac.html[/url]

    Your WAP will have a WAN port -- connect this to your DSL modem. Connect
    the iMac to a LAN port in the WAP (you probably want to get a WAP that
    has LAN ethernet ports). Configure the WAP to connect to your DSL
    provider, and to support DHCP on the LAN/WLAN interfaces. Configure
    TCP/IP on the PC, iMac and iBook to use a DHCP server, and you should
    be set to go.

    Once you have wireless connectivity working, reconfigure the WAP and
    the wireless computers to require/use WEP. It's not terrific security,
    but is better than having a completely unsecured wireless network.

    This question is asked a number of times each week. Use Google.
