Question about Computers & Internet
The SBG900 has only 2 connections on it. One is an Ethernet that allows you to connect one computer via it's Ethernet. The other connector is a USB connection that allows 1 computer to connect, but only a Windows computer. Macintosh and Unix based PC's cannot use that connection. There is also the cable connection to connect your incoming Internet service to the unit. If you only have 2 PC's to connect you can use this unit. If you have or will have in the future more than 2 PC's you will have to connect a router or switch to the Ethernet connection.
There are units available that combine Internet access with 4 port switches or routers. The following URL has an article that compares some of the better units available. You will have to check with your ISP to ensure that any unit you plan to buy will be compatible with their signal.
