I have two computers, one xp one 98 and want to install Broadband. Is it possible to use a USB modem, NOT the router, and just switch connections when necessary? All the isps are tellin me I need a router for both computers and the phone to be constantly connected, but all I
want is access via broadband for faster speeds and phone access and am looking for a solution to this set-up and a knowledge of what equipment I need if it's possible.

Anyone out there who can help, I'd be very appreciative,

I think you will need a router to have both pcs connected at the same time,but if you only want 1 pc online at a time you wont but you will need 2 modems set up on both machines,but im quite knew to BB myself so some1 else may answer better.

Set up the modem on both computers and simply plug it into the one you want to use.
