Question about Computers & Internet
I have a pc using broadband service (cable) but would like to hook up a second pc in a different room. What type of router do I need to do this and is there anything else besides the router that I need. I do not want to have cords running everywhere. My pc I am currently using is windows vista but would like to hook up windows XP in another room. I tried using another cable modem but that wouldn't work.
If you dont want cables everywhere, you best bet is to go wireless.
im using a d-link dkt-110 wireless g.
it is designed for xp but it also works on vista.
it comes with every thing you need even the dongle all for £40 i got mine from pc world. the dongle its self it around £20 to buy and the router is around £30-£40 so i saved my self £10-£20.
i was using a lynksys before and i had alot of trouble with it. but the d-link is very easy to setup and the single is always either good or very good.
its gone down to £34.99 hope this helps james

To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.
