Can sky's wireless broadband box be used to connect 2 pc's to the internet? If so, any advice please?

Finally, what distance can the pc's be from the wireless broadband box?

Many thanks!

Sky box to a wireless router will provide connections to more than one PC.

The range depends on the router.

I've just set up wireless connectivity with the Sky broadband modem/router. To be honest, it's not very good and has low connection rates even at close range. I had to buy a new antenna as recommended on the networking forum in another thread.

Since then, I've achieved maximum signal strength, but I'm only in the next room. Haven't tried it from further away.

I've got two wireless connections, but I think that the router will handle up to six, plus 4 wired ones.
