Hi - we are getting a second PC at home. We need to use both on broadband. How do I connect up two PCs on one broadband connection? What are the implications if both PCs are connected and running at the same time? we have a 8Mbps connection speed.
You need a router. Connect both PC's to the router and the router to your phone line.
You need a ModemRouter I use a 3Com click here
So I guess the existing PC with modem will connect with new computer via router. therefore only one modem?What about both using connection at once? Are there speed/amplitute problems in this?Thanks.
If they both go via a router or modem/router, they will sync up OK and can both be used.However the speed will obviously slow down.I use a wireless router/modem, and often use my laptop when my desktop is busy on the internet
You will not need the current modem. You will need a cable running from the LAN port on each PC to the router/modem. The router/modem will then connect to the phone line.Consider the new router/modem as a hub with the two PC's attaching themselves to it either via a cable or tirelessly.
oops last word should be wirelessly.
Thanks to all.
