Lowest Price?

I have a Speedtouch 330 bb modem. I would like my sons PC to be connected, so I can use my PC at the same time, but I don't have a lot of spare cash, and don't quite understand which is the best way to go, plus what do I need?

The cheapest way to go would be connecting them by crossover cable as long as you have a Lan connection on both machines.

That'll make it a bit easier then. I don't like getting ad-hoc links to use ICS, but at least the equipment is cheap. About a quid from eBuyer!

Points to remember:

Don't use the Windows ICF - it hates ad-hoc networks.

If you use ZA, drop it to medium.

ICS has its own starting IP - can never remember what it is off-hand, but it will show up in ipconfig if you need it. And you usually will need it for your firewalls.
