Some time ago I read a thread that offered something like a "switch box" (not a router) that could be used to connect two (or four) computers to one BB connection. I have tried the search engine but can't seem to find it now. Anyone else remember this thread please, if so can you point me in the right direction. I believe it was available from eBuyer.
I have 3 PC's connected to my NTL Broadband modem and could only do it by using a router. A switch will not work as the modem will only see one computer at a time. A router fools the modem into thinking that 'it' is the PC so the modem locks into that. You then simply connect your other PC's to the router outputs.
