I am in the unfortunate position of being responsible for IT in our office. (I'm no expert I just know a bit more than anyone else) Our current ISP does not run on networked computers. Does anyone know of an reliable ISP that doesn't need a BT phoneline and will run on a network of 7 computers. Carol
Everything is directed through one computer which is currently running on Windows 98, although I'm planning tomake one that runs Windows XP the main one. All the computers link through a box. You'll have to excuse the lack of jargon until 18 months ago I knew nothing about networking and times like this I feel I still don't Carol
If its a router then it will have something like 'Cisco' written on it, will have lots of flashing lights, and connections for networking that look like slightly larger and flatter modem connections (the computer end).
If it's ISDN there will be a BT box on the wall with at least two connections running to the Win98 computer.
It's quite likely that the current connection can be networked - the PC you mention can use 'internet connection sharing' over the network if I remember right.
