Hi, I have a new computer the wife wants to use my old pc and use my broadband connection I have a modem for my broadband connection how can we use the same modem to connect to the internet the modem only has one usb connection to my pc
You need to network the two, either with a cable between the two or with a wireless router.
Thanks for the prompt reply, what cable do I need
First check you have a network (ethernet) card in each computer. This will be a small socket with a symbol of a line with 2 dots above, 1 below.The cable is an RJ45 to connect the two.To set it up, go to Control Panel, Network Setup Wizard, on the new computer.Using this method, the new computer must be on for the old one to connect. If this is unsuitable, you must have a wireless network.
Graham thanks for that, much appreciated
to connect the two computers together directly, you need a CROSSOVER cable.the normal cable is to connect each machine to a router.click here
