I am connected to the net with NTL broadband but also have another computer for the kids that is not connected to the internet. Thing is they would like it to be but what I need to know is how easy is it to fix up so that they can access the net with the connection from my broadband? Is it just a case of getting a router and connecting or am I being totally ridiculous. Any help and info would be greatly appreciated. Ta.
It is connected with an NTL USB set top box although there is the facility for connecting with an ethernet cable but I just haven't got round to it yet. Would I need to do this first. (it's a silver oblong box that sits on top of my tower, if thats any help)
ps you could connect your children's PC wirelessly to yours and they could access the internet via your PC (the gateway PC) without a Router but then only one PC could access at a time and also your PC would always have to be on for them to connect.
My gigabyte motherboard says that it has Network adapter, Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. Do I then still need to get a desktop network card for both PC's (the other PC has the same mohterboard) and then the router. Or can I just get a router and plug it straight in.
