Yes. you dont even need a router.
go here: all it takes is a crossover cable or crossover adapter or you can even use your router to "fake" it.

Router or switch? I'm getting cable internet service in a couple days. The modem will only have one ethernet output but I have multiple PCs and xbox 360s in the house. My question is: Will I be able to...


Hello wetgrass 80,

Switches create a network. Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the Internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it's received quickly.

So, you need a router. Be sure to buy one with wireless connection (wi-fi) so you can connect other gadgets too such as cellphones, psp, netbook, etc..

I hope this helped you.
You can rate my answer if you appreciate my help.
Thanks!

Sir can i connect two pcs one desktop and other laptop for sharing files bw the two and playing games bw them


There are a couple of ways you can network two computers together.
Each computer must have a network card installed together with the LAN card drivers. The two computers needs to be connected to a network hub and these computers need to be set up on the same workgroup name.
Using a network hub will allow more the two computers to be connected to a network and the number of computers that can be installed on this network depends upon the number of available ports on the network hub.
You can use a Crossover LAN cable to connect the two computers together and you won't need a network hub.

What is it used for?


Hello,
You can use this wireless router to connect different wireless devices together. Each device with a wireless network card (computer, phone, gaming system, printer, etc.) can connect to the router without a cable. This will form a network where information can be shared.
The main purpose people use this for is to connect their network to the internet. As long as the router is connected to your internet, every other wireless device can also connect.
Thanks,
Pat

Game server and my IP address


First option is to forward ports where your friends can connect to. The second option is to put your computer in DMZ. These options can be found on the router settings.

Wired router connection


Hi,

To my knowledge, yes. "dial-up internet" connotes standard modem attached to a computer unlike DSL modems (non USB) that are stand alone. Therefore the dial-up internet modem should be connected to a single computer. That PC then would have to enable its Internet Sharing for others in the network to access the Internet. This is accomplished by hooking all the PCs to a single network using a hub/switch. The router can perform this function (hub), however, all the PCs in the network would have to use for their Default Gateway IP address not that of the router but that of the PC with the dial-up internet modem. Having said that, it would then be necessary to use static IP adds in all the PCs. The built-in firewall and DHCP features of the router would not be necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
