note to MGMCC: I'm in the same position as Newuser4654 and would welcome any advice/instructions. I have a Dell Dimension pc and my daughter has an Apple mac. I was hoping to run both machines from the same Tiscali broadband connection. I hope this might be possible. Thanks
Do you want to use "Internet Connection Sharing" with one of the computers (the "Host") connected to the internet and sharing its connection with the "Client" computer? If so, is the PC or the Mac to be the "Host"?
Alternatively, do you want to install a Modem/Router (wired or wireless) to replace your USB modem and allow both computers to have simultaneous internet access independently from a Host computer?
